Africa in Israel

Updated: May 5

Take an exotic trip to an African safari without even leaving Israel, at the Ramat Gan safari, the largest collection of animals in the whole Middle East!

Exit the highway and enter the magical world of lions, tigers, and bears, as you drive into the rugged terrain of Africa, right in the center of Israel! The Ramat Gan Safari and Zoo houses over 1,600 animals from all over the world, including elephants, gorillas, giraffes, and tigers.


The word safari actually means “journey” in Swahili, and a journey is exactly what you will experience during a day at the safari. Not only are you able to see the animals in their natural habitat, but watch them interact and play in their natural, primal behaviors. A true treat!


“The safari is such a great way to spend a day with the family, and is fun for everyone, from children to grandparents! I took my grandchildren for a day of fun, and we all had a blast. Being able to see these magical animals up close was such a cool experience, and you are able to learn so much about them as well- it’s great that it's educational as well. I definitely recommend the safari, especially if you need a bit of an escape from day-to-day life!”

Drive through the safari in the comfort of your own car, or hop on one of the safari run busses to get a fun and informative tour as you drive into the animal kingdom!
