Everything about and around Dead Sea is interesting! At Ein Gedi I felt very good because it was so hot and the waterfalls were natural jacuzzi at the moment and it was wow... so refreshing and relaxing! So, don't forget your swimming suite.
Flora and fauna are incredible. Really beautiful nature with lot of interesting animals. Walking is not so hard, just bring the water with you. Worth to see.

The hike is great, but if you want to spot ibex, follow the signs at the end of the parking lot that point towards the ancient synagogue. (Drive, or walk ~ 1 km) Synagogue has a great mosaic floor (peacocks) and an interesting back story: the community was wealthy enough to build such a beautiful building because they had a secret method of producing balsam perfume - a floor inscription admonishes worshipers not to reveal the secret to competitors)

Ibex - there is a large date palm grove adjacent to the synagogue where large numbers of ibex hang out.

We used our “Green Pass” to enter Ein Gedi.
It is a lush oasis in an otherwise barren landscape.
There are a series of waterfalls up the main gorge, many of which were being enjoyed by bathers.
The area is renowned for its wild life but with the exception of birds (notably the lovely local starlings), we did not see any anything – probably because there were so many people there. However, there are other longer walks in the park away from the stream where it is probably more likely to see the local wild residents.
Definitely worth a visit if you are staying at the Dead Sea. We also visited the nearby botanical gardens which were stunning (and free).

We visited Ein Gedi in March and were blessed with a crisp and pleasant weather. Our guide was knowledgeable not only about history but also about flora and fauna. He pointed out many animals we wouldn't otherwise pay attention to, like the agile rock conies. We walked from the entrance up to Shulamit and David Falls, the walk is not difficult even for the seniors. The legend about David and king Saul makes this place even more interesting, This beautiful dessert oasis is definitely worth to see as a stop on the way to Masada or Dead Sea resort.
