Visited there by beginning of April, with my wife and 2 small daughters(2 & 4.5), For all of us it was very nice attraction, about 1.5 KM walk, see a lot turtles and fishes, walking on the flouting bridge was very nice.(600M). Better to visit to the place in the period you have visiting birds, (Dec), but still nice attraction... More

Awesome paradise for birds as man "pushes" them along their natural migratory pathes ensuring they have plenty to eat in the appropriate marshy areas while the nearby crops are also properly cared for and cultivated. Take an easy bike ride (rentals available)around Agamon Lake, try and spot the water buffalo. True natural beauty.

The birds are most common in the spring and the fall, but whatever the weather this is a paradise, and there's always something to see.

I know this place is supposed to be about the birds but go in the late afternoon for fabulous photo opportunities with or without them. We rented a golf cart and made the loop. Agricultural fields are all around the Reserve and you can see Mt. Hermon and Lebanon and Syria in the distance. As the sun gets lower in... More

It is the end of the migration of the cranes. There were "only" about 80,000 left. We rented bicycles for 50NIS each and spent a wonderful 2 hours biking the approx. 11 km in a nice breeze on a cloudy day. This is a must experience! The animals you see; every kind of bird and rodent is spotted. I took... More

Hula Nature reserve is not a must do on your visit to Israel (unless you are a bird watcher) however it is very beautiful and you will see animals. We saw water buffalo, numerous birds, turtles, fish and a few other mammals. Hula Nature reserve is a well run nature reserve that is VERY crowded on Saturdays. It is awesome... More

Take the tractor ride for birdwatching and not the electric buggy or Bycicles etc the tractor takes you places where you can't reach on your own with the buggy or Bycicles because of the mud. It is a nature reserve and you really close to thousands and thousands of birds migrating from north to south beginning end of September until... More

It's not vast as natural parks go, but it does contain a good variety of wildlife. Birds are abundant but also check for turtles and othe species. The boardwalk has been very well designed and makes for a comfortable walk while not taking away the impression that you're in the wild. We loved it!

This is a great place for bird-watchers, couples, and families with children. The boardwalk makes it accessible and simple, not a long hike, with an excellent visitors center and a terrific 3D movie the kids will love (I loved it too, and I'm a grandmother). Just don't go on a rainy day.
