Postcard from Israel: Hula Valley Nature Reserve

This week our virtual trip takes us north to Israel’s oldest nature reserve in the Hula Valley.

The best time to visit (un-virtually) is in the spring and autumn when millions of migrating birds use the Syrian-African Rift Valley as a highway for their long journey to and from Europe.

Beat the crowds by getting there early in the morning when there’s a good chance of having the water buffalo, birds and papyrus swamps all to yourself.  And don’t miss the 3D film on bird migration – it’s an experience you’ll remember for a long time.
