Birdwatching and Research Center of Eilat (IBRCE ) Reviews
IBRCE - for the bird lovers Oct 31, 2016
This bird watching park is one of the most unique and important birding sites in the country.
Eilat and the Southern Arava are situated on the northern border of the Saharo-Arabian desert strip. Spring migrants arrive at here immediately after crossing the Sahara, making the region a critical stopover site for millions of birds. During the autumn migration, Eilat and the Arava are the last fueling point for these global flyers, before they continue on south, to the hardest leg of their journey – crossing the Sahara Desert. During migration season between 500 million to 1 billion birds pass through this desert skies.
Featuring a handicap accessible boardwalk, a set of trails and a set of well situated hides overlooking the various habitats of the park. The public area also offers restrooms and a small gift shop.
The park is open daily and guided birding tours in the park or surrounding area can be booked.
The park is situated next to Wadi Araba Border Crossing.
At the moment, the best way to get there is by a private car (no buses reach the area). Or by bicycle from Northern Beach (east to Hotels area) along the eastern road, next to Eilot's agricultural fields.
Taxi from Eilat city will cost 30-40 NIS per direction.
The IBRCE Park is open every day, all day long, entrance is free of charge
