Favorite thing: Usually people will visit here and never see the Hyrax (rock bunny or Shavan HaSela in Hebrew). They are very quiet and reclusive so if you make a sudden movement they disapper into the rocks they enjoy sitting and sleeping on. But if you are very quiet and move very slowly you may be able to approach them close enough to get a photo.
One amazing fact that I discovered was that one of the Hyraxes closest relatives in the animal kingdom is the ELEPHANT...

Fondest memory: You can learn more about these beautiful animals at:
