Intro and Overview The Jerusalem Biblical Zoo sits nestled on 25 hectares (62 acres) in the Malha Valley in southern Jerusalem. At it's current location since 1993, the zoo attracts 700,000 visitors a year which makes it Israel's number one tourist attraction. It focuses on current and historical (biblical and recent) local species well as animals from around the world. My review is based on several visits in late August and early September of 2018. Although the zoo has several clearly defined areas, many of it's animals are located in exhibits without a clear connection to adjacent ones. Therefore, I will review the themed areas as units but the unorganized areas will be reviewed as individual enclosures or houses. To that end, my review will be split into four large areas (each being a separate post) with the smaller pre defined exhibits and lone enclosures falling underneath. Miscellaneous info will come last. The sections are as follows: Lagoon Area This large lagoon is located immediately adjacent to the entrance. Several habitats of varying size and content sorround the lagoon along with the lagoon itself being filled with waterfowl and two primate islands. Upper Ridge This ridge overlooks the lagoon area and the sorrounding neighborhoods. It mostly consists of moderately sized mammal yards and several aviaries. Smaller enclosures are also present. Southern Themed Zone The majority of the zoo's themed areas are located here. This area includes the main children's zoo, as well as several other elements designed with children in mind. Large Yards This is the location of the largest zoo exhibits: an African Savana and several adjacent ungulate enclosures. A few satellite enclosures are also found as well as the Noah's Ark structure, which includes a snack bar and eductaional center.
