Our warm Israeli hospitality is second-to-none and well known within the international birding community. We guarantee you an unforgettable stay in our recently renovated lodge, which includes welcoming indoor and outdoor communal areas, a relaxing lounge, dining room, lecture theatre and more! Birders and wildlife lovers are our priority, and this theme runs through all elements of the lodge, from our expert guides to the name of your room! 


Our priority is your comfort, and we have a selection of well-equipped rooms available, as well as options for half board and full board – whatever your needs, we’ll do our best to accommodate them!  


We know that early mornings are often the most important time of day for birding, and with this in mind we offer fruit, coffee and tea for early risers and provide a full breakfast up until 1100hrs – more like a brunch to set you up for the afternoon too! 


All our rooms come with free and reliable wifi.
