Located abt 30mns north of Eilat, this is a worth seeing reserve.
It cater conservation purpose as well as tourist visits. You will see dozains of wild desert animals in this drive thru safari park, Gazelles, Orix and much more.
You need a car to access the site, and you will spent up to 1 hour if you stop frequently to see the animals at the different points along the dirt road.
Worth every penny and a fantastic break from the resort, pure nature.

A great desert experience with kids to see animals close up. The ostrichs can be quite naughty and knock on your car. There is also much to learn about the animals and the desert.

This is a small smelly zoo.
Horses, cows, deer, birds, monkeys.
We saw all the animals.
It was OK.
I recommend it.

It seems that they have been reducing the number and variety of animals they once had. The predator center has been closed.

It was nice to look at different species that we weren't familiar with but there weren't many. The crazy ostriches made it worth it though.

We took a guided tour (at night!!) a few years ago. In the meanwhile there seems to be less animals, and there are no small cages anymore. Consider to skip if you go w/o a tour guide.
