In my opinion the desert in the area around Shkedi's Camplodge is beautiful. If you like the desert, a place to meet other people, good conversations with Gili about Israel, a lot of fun in the desert (i.e. a Jeep-tour) and swimming in the dead see then you should definitely visit Shkedi's Camplodge. Actually it is a must if you... More

Has a perfect vibe and all the amenities you need. The camp was cozy and the rooms were clean and warm. The staff was laid back and extremely helpful. The best place we stayed in Israel. .............

Great Lodge facilities, central meeting point, special hosts and peaceful music as a perfect background. I really enjoyed sitting with all the travelers from all around the world and talk about anything. I'm definitely going to come back soon.

From the photos on Tripadvisor, I was expecting this to be in the middle of nowhere, rather like a nomad camp, with nothing around it for miles and miles. And it is to some extent, but it's within a moshav in the middle of nowhere. However, the "campsite" is so masterfully camouflaged that while, from the outside, it looks like... More

The owner Gil was very helpful, and drove me to the bus stop (free of charge). The camplodge we stayed in was new (all built over the summer), all wood with a wooden floor and a roof with a skylight. The kitchen is well equipped and there is hot water 24/7 for making tea & coffee. We were given a... More

It is an ideal place for people who love nature and enjoy the naturally environment. We felt absolutely freely like at home thanks to Gil and others. It is impossible to describe in words. Certainly we want to go back there and get to know more about of that village. For us it was the best place to stop and... More

we recently stayed one night in the old Egged bus that was converted into what Gil calls "The Honeymoon Suite." But it actually has two sleeping areas and a tiny bathroom and water machine, patio. It is more private that the other cabins. Other cabins do not have private bathrooms. This place is such a hippie place; we loved it.... More

Very kind and responsive staff, almost family aura, comfortable beds, air-conditioned houses, very tidy restrooms and shower rooms. But the place itself is most important – Negev desert is astoundingly beautiful place with something mystical in it. Situated nearby are Masada fortress, Timna nature park, Dead Sea and lots of hiking, driving and cycling tour routes. To sum up, that’s... More

We spent one night at Shkedi's. The place is charming, and it was easy to order a meal on a moment's notice from someone in the moshav. We had a whole huge tent to ourselves, with tons of mattresses and pillows. We even had a "desert-cooler" (it was 38 clesius at 8:30pm) which made the tent a lovely place to... More
