Took a tour of Timna Park with Luis at Shanti Jeep Safari. Park is not to be missed. There is an entry fee, new visitor orientation center, snack bar. Remember to ask for vial to fill with local colored sand.

The park is well kept and the dirt roads are well thought so we can see, explore and appreciate history. Yet it is done in such manner that one doesn't feel trapped in a "tourist attraction"

Beautiful place! I thought the place is smaller so get ready for long walks and be sure you have enough of water. Views are great, rock formations amazing... It's really worth to go there. The best place near Eilat I think. We got engaged there,...More

The lifesize model of the Tabernacle is a great place to visit if you want to understand a little more about the Bible ..Old Testament, New Testament or both. Also the ancient rock art.

Beautiful desert landscape just north of Eilat. There is a small man made lake. We took a bike ride to Solomon’s Pillars then drove to the Mushroom. Worth a visit.

Hi! Do not take any guide. Do it yourself. At entry, you will receive a map with all you need to know. About Jerusalem, I don’t know anything. Yet :)
