In Yodfat monkey forest🐵🐒 small monkeys run free and can be fed (you can buy small bags of food intended for monkeys in the cashier. It is forbidden to provide food from home). The monkeys are used to people, climb on them, and the interaction with them is fantastic. Some of the monkeys in the park were rescued from other places where they have been abused.
Spectacular peacocks roam free alongside the monkeys. The males occasionally open the feathers to impress the females, and the view is amazing 🦚
Chickens run free, too 🦃.
It is a great pleasure for children and adults - you do not need small children to come and enjoy - the forest is charming, shady, and there are corners to sit in the park.
Near the monkey forest, there is a charming complex of cafes, restaurants, and small shops. The complex overlooks the incredible view. The complex is also open on Saturdays.
