Wildlife Area
Unwind at David Falls and admire an ancient mosaic of the synagogue at En Gedi Nature Reserve, a tranquil nature resort featuring two year-round streams. Covering 1,400 hectares (3,459 acres), the area's convenient facilities and diverse plant and animal life make it one of the most popular nature sites in Israel. Take a dip in a pond of a limestone cavity, climb cliffs overlooking the Dead Sea, and explore Dodim Cave with a window on the lake. Acacias and palm trees provide necessary shade, and you might encounter Nubian ibexes at close quarters. Bear in mind, all the while, that you are at an elevation of 423-200 m (1,388-656 ft) below sea level.

  • This is one of the most beautiful courses in the world by far! This oasis in the Judean must have seen absolutely desert at the dead sea everyone who visits Israel. Especially in the summer, if it's hot outside super and one above is arrived at the waterfalls, looks so refreshing. Walking on a path to the top, in addition to on you can see various animals and special plants. In between, small pool, running down water, have formed. Best with the clothes inside! Anyway to dry in the hot air right back and has something from refreshment. So really highly recommended! I find the atmosphere at the waterfall at the top, very pleasant. Very important especially for Christians. Here, the David of the King Saul had hidden had. So be sure to plan a!
