March 24-31, 2024

The Festival is based in Eilat and takes in all the major sites and key species of Southern Israel. Besides the Eilat area, the festival package includes excursions further afield to Nizzana and the Negev as well as the famous "Stars of the night" tour to the Dead Sea region.

There is no doubt that the Eilat Birds Festival is the best value package for birding Eilat and southern Israel during the peak of spring migration. One the best thing about the festival is the small size of our groups, so make sure to book your package soon. We thank our followers and many returning clients which are a testament to the quality of the event.

Follow your instinct and migrate to Israel next spring, enjoy a memorable birding holiday and do your part for bird conservation as well.

We remind you that the festival is run by a nonprofit environmental organization which means that all our proceeds go directly to bird and habitat conservation.
