This place is magical. Allows you to connect with your fellow travellers and nature in a way that most of us only vaguely remembers from childhood. We were on a company team building trip and every single colleague of ours was in awe. We have opted for the evening cooking class and boy what amazing dishes we made! Some of us also participated in the sunrise hike and were rewarded with gorgeous views of the Judean desert. David and his staff are doing a wonderful job in creating a unique experience for their guests. We were regretting to leave so soon and promised to be back with family and friends. Thank you very much David for making our trip a truly memorable one.

Staying here may just be the most I have ever "roughed it"... and it was a sublime experience. When we drove into a petrol station from the highway heading for Jerusalem and saw signs pointing to Desert Camping, I started to get worried. I mean...how much of a desert experience can we get in a camp right next to the highway? The further in we drove through unpaved gravel away from the highway, the more relief I felt, and a bit of excitement. When we got to the camp, it was just about what I had expected...a large tent which I assumed would be our accommodation, an outhouse or 2, a large gathering area with a thatched roof, and a couple of places set-up for campfires. This, surrounded by desert hills which gave us a sense of remote privacy, even though I was aware the highway was less than a kilometer away. As we were given an orientation tour by our very hospitable German volunteer staff member Lina, we learned that the camp is powered by a generator which will provide us with electricity to charge up our mobiles, that the generator will be switched off once we went to bed, that David (the owner) would be back to bring the router for WiFi connection, that wood was ready for a campfire, that the toilets were eco-friendly and wood chips would be used instead of flushing, that there was a "spot" right outside the tent where we can burn wood which would heat up the tent if it got too cold at night...in short, I was going to have to "rough it". But amidst the lack of all the modern conveniences that I certainly took for granted, there was a sense of power and strength and a bit of inspiration knowing that, not only will I survive this one evening, but I may learn some valuable lessons about what are truly essentials in my life. In a word; SUBLIME. Thanks to all the volunteer staff and David for giving us the best evening during our 1 week stay in Israel. AND I loved the shakshuka!

The beauty of the desert unfolded at sunset and sunrise in a magical way. This camping experience was a memorable part of my recent stay in Israel. The children all loved preparing the vegetarian meal and gathering around the camp fire while the food bubbled in the cast-iron pots on the fire. The family tent for 20 was a favourite with the younger set but I enjoyed the quiet and peacefulness of the tent for two, with a comfortable mattress and the eco-toilets and showers not too far away. David was a great host and the breakfast shakshuka and other delights delicious. Really worthwhile.

Room Tip: Go for the private tent, that way it is more like glamping than camping

My boyfriend and his family invited us to Israel to stay with them for the holidays and we ended up spending a family night at the desert camping trip and this was the most amazing thing we have ever done! The food was amazing, the facilities were beautiful, the host was magnificent! We started off our night walking all the way up to the top of the hills to watch a sunset, and we came back down and cooked a phenomenal meal with the most amazing ingredients in the world! The night was so beautiful and we woke up and went on a hike to watch the sunrise. This was the most amazing, inspiring, peaceful, and most beautiful trip! I would recommend this 1000 times to anybody! Can't wait to go back!
