Our private Negev Desert and Bedouin Experience Day whisks you away to the southern sands of Israel to discover natural wonders, uniquely Israeli communities, ancient ruins, and more! Visit the historic kibbutz community of Sde Boker, the place that captured the heart of Israel’s first prime minister, Ben Gurion. Visit his home and learn more about how this area charmed him so completely. Step further into the past with a stop at Avdat’s Nabatean ruins, another stunning city built by the same masterminds that engineered the beautiful buildings of Petra and Madain Saleh. Explore some of the country’s natural charms at Mitzpe Ramon, an expansive and unique crater formation named for the Israeli astronaut Ilan Ramon. You’ll also get a taste of traditional Bedouin life with lunch at one of their camps, and if you want the full experience, we recommend taking a camel ride to snap some stunning selfies!
