The trip to BenGurion's tomb, and to the Negev is a necessary part of understanding the Israeli viewpoint, he shows determination, hope, and humor. The overlook into Sde Boker is a necessary insight into this world leader.

Even on Saturday, it will take about two hours to get there from Jerusalem via Kiryat Gat and Beer Sheeba. If you will drive down to the Dead Sea, along it and up through Dimona to Sde Boker, it will take close to three hours. You will spend more time, but this is an opportunity to see the Dead Sea, Judean desert and the canyons on your way up.
To come back to Tel Aviv is about two hours drive too.
I recommend to contact Camels Farm in advance, just to be sure that they will be organized to meet and to host you.
