On our way to the upper Galilee we stopped for an hour at Gan Garoo. The place is very relaxing and inviting, the bird-feeding cages are exciting, some of the animals are accessible and friendly and the new pre-historic exhibition is kinda tacky but still...More

This place was awesome. We mainly went for the kangaroos. Those animals are incredibly docile, and very patient with the little kids there. If they don't want people near them, they have the ability to hop to an area behind a rope where people won't...More

It's just a wonderful place to take children to. Feeding kangaroos, wondering in a maze, watching birds and koalas, and don't forget the dinosaurs! You'll have a lot of fun. Just stay away from "Al Asala" restaurant, that is placed near by. Don't risk ruining...More
