The En Afek Nature Reserve preserves swampland and waterway sources the majority of which have been lost in Israel. Along the swamp pathway in the Reserve, visitors "float" over a swamp surrounded by rich riverbank vegetation and colorful water birds. From the top of the ancient flour mill they can see views of the Akko valley, and in the Garden Shelter they can get an impression of rare plants from the coastal plain.

This nature reserve is nice for families and couples. It has a walking route which illustrates how the area was hundreds of years ago. The best time to visit there is during fall and spring.

Very beautiful place cumfy to walk with a stroller and little kids. Great way to enjoy nature and to watch animals. Part of the trip is on a deck above water it's fun and safe.

We really enjoyed visiting En Afek, it is close to city but still looks like hidden paradise. Don't forget the sunscreen!

One of our favourite places to visit, a nature reserve minutes from the heart of the city (Kiryat Bialik) with wooden walks over swampland. Best to visit in winter, or in Autumn, to see many migrating birds, fish, turtles, etc. and also sea squills blooming...More

We have been in a really hot day and all we wanted was to get into the water (not allowed). A nice walk between ponds and on wooden bridges, not a mouth dropping.

En afek is just one of many such reserves in Israel and well worth a visit. Stunningly beautifulwild landscape with flora and fauna for those budding environmentalists. It is a relaxing and stimulating attraction and deserves a visit
