Desert Activities

A jeep tour to Sinai desert views

Our recommended and most attractive tour is a jeep ride along the Sinai desert Biblical view and to the Sabcha water hole – an ancient 2000 year old water hole dug by the Nabatian people. It holds water all year round and offers you refreshing cold water in the middle of the desert. Climbing down with a ladder, swimming, drinking fresh coffee in the unbelievable desert view…
That’s living!

On our way to the water hole we will go through archaeological sites, climb on to vantage points of the Sinai timeless desert, valleys, mountains, open landscapes and the special story of the Israeli – Egyptian border.

Tour duration- about 3.5 hours (it is possible to arrange longer or personalized tours by order).

Tour price – 1150 ILS per jeep sitting up to 5 people.

Price per jeep 1800 ILS.

Stargazing

Desert night.
Silence.
A light breeze is sneaking under the shirt and tickles you in delight. In the distance the mountains meet the star glowing skies. Stars that were forgotten and disappeared with the city’s light.
Here in the Friendly Negev Desert we have an opportunity to travel back in time and go to where it all began 14 billion years ago… The universe, the stars, the planets, the earth we stand on and the very air we breath…

With a special telescope we will venture into the sky, close by in the solar system and deep in space light years away. We’ll get to know the sky map, the Zodiac mythology and more. Scorpius, Dragon, Swan, all a part of the constellations that we will see in the darkness offered by the desert night sky.
Join us for our tour to the edge of the universe.
