Hai Bar National Biblical Wildlife Reserve

| |

The Hai Bar National Biblical Wildlife Reserve introduces a 3,000-acre (12 km2) area, located on the suburbs of Eilat in Southern Israel. It’s purpose is for protection, re-acclimation and reproduction of the locally extinct and rare animals that are indicated in the Bible. Moreover, there are also some endangered desert animals, which are not from Israel. One example would be an animal from the Northern Africa, called the Scimitar Oryx. The Israel Nature Reserves and National Parks Authority manage the Wildlife Reserve.

The Hai Bar National Biblical Wildlife Reserve is indeed one of the most unique safari, not only in Israel, but all over the world. You can reach the place from Road 90; in the vicinity of Kibbutz Yotvata, Eilat’s north. The visitors could witness and observe these animals in their natural surroundings. Animals that are in the wildlife reserve include Oryx, Ostrich, Addax, Asian Wild Ass, Sand Cat, Arabian Leopard, Arabian wolf, Dorcas Gazelle, Nubian Ibex, and more. Apart from that, an indoor dark area permits the people to take a glimpse of nocturnal creatures like fruit bats, gerbils, and owls.

The entire tour takes around two hours, wherein the visitors must stay in their vehicles all throughout the exploration. An audio guided tape can be purchased or you might as well hire a private tour guide where they offer live vindication using their car. The Hai Bar National Biblical Wildlife Reserve is open all year-round from Sunday through Thursday at 8:30 am until 5:00 pm. However, every Fridays and Saturdays, the reserve is open until 4pm only. To enjoy and appreciate the beauty of the wildlife reserve more, the place provides overnight camping grounds for tents and includes sleeping trailers, which are available for rent.
