he Gan Botani Eilat (botanical garden) is the only ecological garden of its kind in the world. Here you will discover a rare collection of plants, grown from seeds that were brought from all over the world.
The seeds were germinated and grown in desert soil enriched with a layer of compost. The terraces were built over the years, one stone on top of the other according to a traditional method, in order to create balanced agriculture lands and to overcome the high salinity of the ground and water. Thus despite the harsh weather and minimal sediment levels in Eilat, the garden flourishes, and it is lush and varied. Along with local vegetation, there’s an artificial rainforest with tropical species.
The botanical garden features enchanting paths that wend their way among the terraces and river, with sitting areas in which you can enjoy the fragrant blooms and observation points with marvelous panoramas of the Edom Mountains and the Red Sea.
