Great place to visit in Eilat to learn a bit more about the local wildlife and environment. It is perfect for families with children. I recommend getting a guide who can better explain about the various sights.

First to Review

Yovata Hai-Bar National Wildlife Reserve Park is a short drive away down the highway from Timna Park and these two locations can be combined in one day trip from Eilat. It is really best if you have rented a car, because no public transport goes this way and hitchhiking is on-and-off. This nature reserve is great for kids or animal lovers. It is a breeding and rehabilitation center that breed endangered and locally extinct animals that are mentioned in the Bible. The aim is to eventually reintroduce these animals in the Negev. They have apparently successfully reintroduced some. There is possibility to camp on the site and join the rangers on a night tour to watch them feed the animals, and you can also get a CD (10NIS) with commentary. I would not make a special trip out to this, but if you're into animals and conservation or if you have kids in the car, you would love this. You get to see all the animals really close to your car.
