You find us in southern israel just between the dead sea and eilat close to route 90 in a village called 'Hatseva'.
Coming from Tel Aviv (approx 3 hrs. drive) you should drive direction Beer Sheva, following up to (and passing!) Dimona you will come to the entry of the southern israeli deserts that is called Arava Junction.
Coming from Jerusalem (approx. 2.5hrs. drive) drive to Almog Junction, there you turn right, pass Ein Gedi, Ein Bokek and the Dead Sea Works along one of the most spectacular drives in the world along the Dead Sea, drive through 'the circle of Sodom' passing Neot ha Kikar and Ein Tamar you come to the Arava Junction.
Have a safe trip, please dont forget to take water with you :-)
At Arava Junction please drive direction Eilat! you will pass the first gas station and drive on!
The road 90 that you are on right now follows the border to jordan, you will drive over a bridge that is above the famous 'vadi amaziyahu' and pass the village called 'Idan'.
After passing Idan on route 90 you will see the 'Yellow' Gas Station where you can find a Burger Ranch and a 'Aroma' cafe as well.
Please pass the Gas Station now and be aware because the next junction is Hatseva (us!)
(On your way you will see the windmill of the Vidor Visitors Center and afterwards the field school!)
On Hatseva branching please turn left and drive until you pass the yellow gate of our village!
When you pass the yellow gate please watch for the sign 'Shvilim ba midbar' (wooden sign with yellow writing!), you drive straight until the end of the palm row to your right and turn right. now you drive all straight through the circle and you will find us on the right!
Coming from Eilat (approx. 2hrs. drive) please stay on route 90, pass villages like Faran and Sapir, just the one behind Ein Jahav, that is Hatseva.
From Tel-Aviv: take Egged bus 394 or 393 and get off at Hatzeva.
From Jerusalem: take Egged bus no. 444 and get off at Hatzeva
Contact us upfront and we'll organize a pick up for you from the junction.
We are located 50 Km south of the Dead Sea just in the middle of the Arava desert.
Being 'just in the middle of it' it is easy to reach all points of interest that you might look for in the heart of the Deserts of Israel.
