The reserve today is once again alive with gray herons, cormorants, ducks, pelicans, wild boar, water buffalo, and other former species of the area that had died off or gone elsewhere when the swamps were drained. The best hours for a visit are early in the morning, especially in summer, when the birds and animals of the Hula are active. A new path has been constructed, suitable for wheelchairs. At the visitor center, free films about the reserve are shown. A combined ticket with the nature reserves at Baniyas, Dan, Gamla, and Ayun costs NIS 40 ($10/£5).
Right in the center of the Hula Valley, at Yesud Hama'ala (but still on the reserve), is the picturesque, restored Dubrovin Farm, housing an agricultural museum (entrance fee of NIS 12/$3/£1.50) and a moderately expensive rustic restaurant that specializes in smoked meats. The Dubrovin Farm, a series of stone houses built at the turn of the 20th century, was the homestead of a family of Russian Christians who converted to Judaism and turned this section of the Hula swamp into a model farm. In 1986, the farm was donated to the Jewish National Fund and opened to the public. If you decide to dine here, show your entrance ticket to the museum, and your admission fee will be deducted from the price of your main course. The reserve also has a snack bar and picnic area.
