In the village of Kfar Nokdim, you'll find a diverse selection of overnight accommodations, ranging from authentic Bedouin tents for youth groups to comfortable homes equipped with all the conveniences. There's something for everyone - tents lined with matting and protected by woollen rugs and blankets, bivouacs with sturdy wooden huts, and well-appointed residences decorated with authentic materials, echoing the dwellings of the first Jewish tribes under the leadership of Joshua. Spacious homes with cosy interiors closely mirror traditional furnishings and fixtures. You'll find hot water, modern shower and toilet facilities, and homes with bathtubs everywhere.
Staying here provides an excellent opportunity to immerse oneself in the authentic nomadic lifestyle. This means experiencing a camel or donkey ride, attending a traditional 'reception' in a Bedouin tent, learning about the secrets of coffee brewing and "bride kidnappings", and visiting an authentic sauna complete with eucalyptus branches and a temperature of 120°C.
All the dining areas are stylized and served as you would find in a genuine 'parade' tent of a nomad, reminiscent of what it might have been like in Abraham's tent when he encountered travellers. You can dine while reclining or, in keeping with modern habits, seated at tables. Breakfasts are delightful on the breezy rooftops, and the cool morning and evening breezes will remind you that the desert can be pleasantly cool.
Evening gatherings around the fire, guitar music, moonlit walks in the desert, a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life while still enjoying all the comforts of modern living - that's what Kfar Nokdim village is all about.
