Arab Ar-Rashayida – Abu Ismail Bedouin Tent

The tent is a place where we can introduce the visitors to the Bedouin culture and the legacy of Arab Ar-Rashayida. In the middle of the Jerusalem Wilderness, nearby the village of Arab Ar-Rashayida, since 2009, Abu Ismail and his family welcome visitors in their Bedouin tent. He is proud to say that during that time he had a chance to host people of various backgrounds and nationalities. He keeps in mind especially the youth groups like university students, scouts and sportsmen. Abu Ismail says that at his tent people can enjoy the calmness of the area. Abu Ismail’s family and others helping him to run the place, offer traditional meals, evenings with tea and Bedouin music, support for groups which would like to hike in the area, and 4×4 jeep rides.

The natural legacy of the place is simply outstanding. The rocky desert stretches for kilometers around the tent. Various trekking paths lead to the spectacular and high cliff overlooking the deep blue waters of the Dead Sea. The place can be especially enjoyed during a sunrise.

Abu Ismail invites everyone who would like to have a real desert experience. He is proud to repeat what his visitors say about the place. For example, one Danish woman, who has visited many place in Palestine, “has never had such experience before and she was very glad”.
