The reserve is on the Yotvata salt flats (on both sides of the Arava Road), between Hashayarot Cliffs in the West and the Jordanian border in the East, covering an area of about 32,000 dunams. It is an arid desert region (annual precipitation only 25 mm rain), however, it is relatively rich in vegetation and is therefore able to maintain a variety of animals. That is the reason why this area was chosen for the unique project of restoring some of the large animals that recently became extinct.
Yotvata Salt Flats are one of the three largest salt flats in the southern Arava (the others are the Evrona Salt Flats and the Eilat Salt Flats, from which only a few vestiges remain). It is a habitat with a rich variety of vegetation and animals, and that it why it was selected for the restoration project.
The reserve is in the Eilot region, about 35 kms north of Eilat. The entrance into the reserve is from the south, opposite Kibbutz Samar.Except for the visit to the predators center, the trail around the reserve, from which it is forbidden to stray, is designated for vehicles only.
