The Eco-Camp

The Desert Shade Eco Camp, located in a magical desert landscape on the rim of the Ramon Crater, is the perfect desert accommodation option for individuals, families, and groups. Its unique location on the edge of the largest crater and nature reserve in Israel is the ultimate gateway to explore the desert trails in the area. The camp is also within walking distance of the center of town, meaning you can enjoy the beauty and serenity of the desert as well as all the attractions and entertainment options in Mitzpe Ramon.


An Eco-Tent - what the heck is that?!


Our ecological tents, or Eco-Tents, are a unique combination of simple construction and walls built with recycled materials. This method of construction has many advantages and ensures the right temperature is maintained within the Eco-Tent, meaning you don’t get to feel the extreme weather fluctuations of the desert. We’ll tell you all about the pros and cons of eco-construction when you stay with us at Desert Shade!
