This spacious oasis in the Judean desert, between the city of Arad and Massada can accommodate hundreds of people, with easy access by car, but feels private and secluded. The atmosphere is calm and quiet. Families and groups have common spaces to gather together. The place is decorated creatively by the local Bedouines, who also service the place very efficiently...

My husband had doubts when I told him I'd booked camel rides and dinner at a Bedouin village. As we were driving the desolate road there (the same road that approaches the back side of Masada) he kept asking if the place was one camel, one donkey and an old Bedouin couple. Far from it! Charming, well planned amenities accompanied...

A Bedouin village for the whole family. Camel rides, Masada close by, wonderful food and friendly personnel. Accommodations simple but clean and air conditioned. We all had a fantastic desert treat. I will definitely return to this desert holiday.

This is a commercialized bedouin camp. It gives you something of the experience but, of course, it is designed for tourists. So it has some facilities you would never find in a real bedouin camp. There actually is a tourist shop to buy stuff you really don't need. There are camel rides and donkeys and a petting place for goats....

We wanted to experience life in the desert and decided to try Kfar Hanokdim. The experience was well worth it! The staff (Erez and Gal) was very friendly and helpful and the accommodation was more than adequate. We initially booked a tent, but upon arrival we were offered the option of a room, as the camp was fairly quiet. Looking...

A wonderful place where we had enjoyed dinner Bedouin style a bonfire and slept out in a Bedouin tent. We got up at 0400 hrs and departed at 0430 hrs for hiking mountain to catch the sunrise overlooking the Dead Sea. What a great experience !

We had a wonderful trip. We rode on camels, we partook in Bedouin hospitality where we had the rare treat of listening to a Bedouin woman share her experiences from a woman's point of view, She was so inspirational... We loved her very much! We then had a delicious meal before driving back to Jerusalem. All of the staff were...

“Bring a torch for night walks.”
  • All the rooms were decorated individually. Definitely quirky and nice.
  • The entrance to the room, well looked after with a nice personal touch.
