When to go camping here?
Camping in the south of Israel is for the desert lovers.
The Negev desert covers a third of the land of Israel. Be’er Sheva, gateway to the Negev, is an ancient yet modern city. Be’er Sheva is well connected by train and buses to all parts of Israel. The desert stretches all the way south from Be’er Sheva down to the city of Eilat on the Red Sea shore.
Camping in the south of Israel is a way to discover the wonders of the desert wilderness. The best season to camp here is in the spring- from March to May. Remember this is a high area so nights can get really cold. Summer in the Negev gets extremely hot and not recommended for hiking.
