We (family of 5 incl. 3 teenaged kids) would like a 2 day stay at Kibbutz Ein Gedi. I can't seem to find a direct website or contact info for them (tried Google, Kayak). Is Ein Gedi Hotel same as Ein Gedi Kibbutz? Are reservations made only via the link " http://www.ein-gedi.co.il/en/"? Also, can we take bus from Jerusalem to Ein Gedi kibbutz or need to rent car in Jerusalem? I was hoping to rent car in Ein Gedi for travel use in the area, then take bus back to Ben Gurion airport for 1pm departure to USA. Or can Ein Gedi be explored without a car...?
Thanks to you all for your great help.
