I ended my 3 week tour of Israel with 2 nights at this fascinating place in the Negev Desert, located on the path of the ancient spice road from Arabia to the Mediterranean Sea. It was an experience unique and special in many ways.
Ariel Ullmann, the host and owner of the ranch, is a modern Israeli man, with one foot in the present, the other in the past. He learned about camels by apprenticing with Arab Bedouins when a teenager, and realized then that he had found his direction in life. He combines that experience with the most modern of animal husbandry science to raise healthy, well-adjusted camels, and shares his knowledge with people as far away as Australia and Northern India. I learned more about the Nabataeans, camels, and the ancient spice caravan trail, in a one hour camel ride with Ariel than a full day with a guide to Petra, where the Nanataeans based their empire.
The room was basic, but I slept very well on a good, firm bed. The meals were outstanding. It was a highlight of my trip, which was filled with wonderous experiences.
