We are authentic arab family living in the desert in Palestine, located nearby the Dead Sea. We are 20 family members all together. We have a big tent for tourists and we organize daytrips to the desert with the overnight staying in our home. We also offer the camel rides and volunteers can be part of the journeys.
The walks following the footsteps of Abraham, history and natural heritage. Each daytrip offers travellers something unique - from historical cities to Beduin camps, from the desert landscapes to olive groves planted on terraced fields.
In our home we have a lot of animals to take care of- camels, donkeys, sheeps, goats, chicken, roosters, cats and dogs. Most of our food we make here in our home - butter, labanah (yoghurt) and we use the eggs from our own chicken. You can see the real farmlife with us in a quiet and peaceful place. You are welcome to help with all the process about the food.
There is a lot to enjoy in the desert - to wake up with the sunrise and and to see amazing sunsets. To get the feeling of peace and quiet and see the stars at the night.
