In addition, the Safari holds several international records, for example, the largest herd of hippos in the world’s largest zoos or the world’s largest known African elephant. The safari is the largest in Israel and the Middle East in the collection (number of species) of animals and is special in the whole world due to the large herds grazing in ‘African Safari’. The safari has about 1,200 animals from all over the world (of which about 800 in the African area and 400 in the zoo), among them: 80 species of mammals, 69 species of birds, and 15 species of reptiles!
