About the Safari

The Safari is located on 100 hectares of wild nature in an urban center in central Israel: Africa in the heart of Gush Dan.


The word “Safari” comes from Swahili, meaning journey. We invite you, our visitors, to go on a fascinating journey following the animals of the African savanna here, in Ramat Gan. Just like in their native habitats in Africa, the animals here move freely in large herds. And just like travelers in Africa, you could also be the guests of nature and watch the typical behavior of animals while eating and socializing, being active or resting. You would be able to distinguish between males and females, watch supremacy displays, courtship demonstrations, mating and maybe even births, and you would definitely be thrilled by seeing parents taking care of their babies.


The Ramat Gan Safari has the largest collection of animals in the Middle East, and it is unique thanks to the large herds that roam the African grounds. The Safari contains about 1,600 animals from all over the world. Among them 68 mammal species, 130 bird species and 25 reptile species. The Safari is home to African and Asian elephants, giraffes, orangutans, Sumatran tigers, gorillas and more.
