What to expect
Explore the biblical land of Jerusalem and discover the beautiful wildlife that call Gazelle Valley home. The valley is the largest urban wildlife site in Israel, spreading over 60 acres in the heart of Jerusalem. Visitors will tour the valley and gain an insight into the wildlife in Jerusalem. Witness Gazelles run by, owls roost in the trees, hedgehogs scurry along the ground, and many others. Learn about the ecosystem and how the animals function in the valley. Discover the beauty of this beautiful, preserved land. When the Begin Road – a main route in Jerusalem – was built, the wildlife population in the Valley got cut off from the population and natural resources outside of the city. So, along with the new road, Jerusalem received 35 new four-legged residents. Therefore, the Gazelle Valley nonprofit organization fought to maintain the wildlife in the valley and ameliorate the potential negative effects of the urban environment. After 20 years of legal and public struggle on behalf of the nonprofit and many others, the Gazelle Valley has become an official Urban-Wildlife site. Experience firsthand the dedication and passion behind the preservation of Gazelle Valley and gain an authentic, alternative tour of Jerusalem and its wildlife. Before you leave, you can leave your own mark on the valley by planting a tree or taking part in other small contribution activities. Join in the preservation of this breathtaking natural site in the heart of Jerusalem.
