Welcome to Kfar Hanokdim
Kfar Hanokdim was established in 1991 by Yoram Roded, who’d always been passionate about the Bedouin life in the Sinai desert. When the peninsula was returned to Egypt, he looked for a piece of land within Israel to create the same kind of nomadic experience. After analyzing several territories he bumped into a special place, located in the Kana’im Valley near Arad and the Dead Sea.
Once the place was set Yoram Roded started building his Bedouin camp, staying close to its original elements but with a few modern necessities. All materials used were found in the surroundings: stone, wood, salt crystal lamps and rugs made from goat hair. In order to meet its customer’s needs toilets and showers were also installed in shared complexes.
