If you are in Israel Nahal Me’arot Nature Reserve is a must-see.

Have you ever wondered what it was like living in prehistoric times, cavemen style? If so, boy have we got a treat for you and your entire clan (no pun intended) to enjoy…Named by UNESCO as a world heritage site, this extraordinary place will leave you and your loved ones in complete awe and wonder for its rich history, geology and wonderful nature experience.

Located in the Carmel mountains, just about 15. minutes drive south of Haifa, this site offers a great memorable and exciting outdoor activity for the whole family, while exploring prehistoric caves that have been here since basically the dawn of men (about 500,000 years ago!).

These 3 caves allows for a rare glimpse at how people lived, ate and hunted back in the day (5 prehistoric cultures lived in these caves!) and in case you’re travelling with your kids, make sure you don’t miss out on the 3rd cave’s illustration audiovisual movie that will surely get your kids truly hyped.

In addition to being a kids friendly explanation on-site, this awesome nature reserve also has several marked trails for easy walking (paved routes), plenty of shaded picnic areas, clean bathrooms and even a small gift shop. It is definitely a fabulous trip to share with the kids and/or grand-kids!
