Ashburn

The flagship cabin of Nof Zuqim, located on the edge of a hill overlooking the landscape, sets the wanderer’s spirit free.  The cabin is surrounded by a breathtaking panoramic landscape, at the foot of which lies the Zufar stream and its wide tributaries. The view of the sunset from the cabin is spectacular. The cabin is suitable for couples and families. The cabin is named after the Ashburn stream characterized by impressive cracks – hence its Arabic name “Maklam Abu-Sir”, which means “the cut sections of the wanderer.” 

Tze'ela

A cabin surrounded by a breathtaking panoramic landscape, located at the edge of a hill, overlooking the ancient landscape – this cabin is designed for couples. The cabin is located in the eastern part of Nof Zuqim, at the foot of which you can see the meeting of the rivers Tsofar and Ashush and the distant Edom Mountains looking back from the Jordanian kingdom. In Arabic, the stream is called “Wadi a-Siyal,” which means “the flowing stream.” The Tze’elim stream is one of the largest seasonal streams in the Judean Desert, along with 4 springs and many waterholes.

Shechoret

Sitting on a hill in the eastern part of Nof Zuqim is the Shechoret cabin. Beneath it is the wild desert and above a starry sky.  The cabin is located on top of a stone staircase and due to its height you can see Wadi Ashush pouring into the Arava stream, while in the background stand the Edom Mountains of the Kingdom of Jordan. Shechoret canyon is the bottleneck of the Shechoret stream that begins in the high mountains of Eilat. Along the creek are hard granite rocks, where flood water cut into and created the impressive and colorful channel. To this day, flooding in the area is constantly reshaping the depth and route of the canyon.

Kedem

On the eastern side of Nof Zuqim, at the foot of the hill, Kedem cabin lies in a quiet and unique corner.  Due to its height, the desert landscape is open in all directions. From the cabin you can see Wadi Ashush pouring into the Arava stream and in the background the Edom Mountains in the Kingdom of Jordan. The Kedem stream, or by its Arabic name, ‘Wadi a-Shukaf’ (The Cliffs Creek), is one of the smallest in the Judean Desert, in terms of its length, but it is home to the highest waterfall in Israel, about 330 meters high! The waterfall creates a cliff hoof more than a mile wide.

Rahaf

Cabin Rahaf is situated on a hill, facing the desert mountains and the compound cabins.  The cabin is located on top of a stone staircase and due to its height you can see Wadi Ashush pouring into the Arava stream, while in the background stand the Edom Mountains of the Kingdom of Jordan. The cabin is located in the eastern part of the Nof Zuqim complex. The Rahaf stream, or in its Arabic name, “Wadi Hefahaf” (a stream of whistling wings), is one of the streams that flows from the Judean Desert to the Dead Sea, near Mount Elazar. The bottom part of the creek is most impressive, where the creek flowing through the cliff creates a huge crevice about 200 meters deep. In the winter, the huge cisterns are flooded and the passage in the creek requires serious swimming skills, and knowledge of climbing and surfing.

Tamar

Situated at the end of a row of cabins on the eastern side of Nof Zuqim, is the Tamar cabin. Great for sunrise lovers because it faces the sun rising in between Edom mountains.  Intimate, romantic and magically intertwined with the open desert landscape everywhere. The Tamar stream, where the edges of Hatzera ridge drain into, falls steeply into the Sodom Prairie area. The water flowing here in a flood created a short, wild and challenging canyon. You can surf it with ropes in the natural rock slides, descend on long ladders along dry waterfalls and savor high chilly walls even on hot summer days.

Barak

The Barak cabin is situated at a particularly high point with a fresh, clear desert breeze from the hot tub and balcony. Down the hill is a lush and green spice garden, hammocks and a desert cooking stand, which is shared with the nearby Gov cabin.  Recommended for families or couples who want to spend their vacation together. It is named after the Barak stream flowing south of the town. The river’s Arabic name is “the kettle”. Anyone who swims in the water, surrounded by the rounded cliff walls, can easily understand where the name comes from.

Gov

Carried on a hillside is the Gov cabin, overlooking the stunning desert landscape and horse stables. Its entrance goes through the cabin’s yard with a lush and green spice garden, hammocks and a desert cooking stand shared with the nearby Barak cabin.  Recommended for families or couples who want to spend their vacation together. The Gov stream comes from its Arabic name: Wadi al-Joff, a river 8 km long in the northern Negev Mountain that descends by the Scorpions’ Pass to Zin stream, which extends through the Arava to the Dead Sea. A rare tropical tree grows in the channel, uncommon in Israel and especially in the Negev, called Moringa Peregrina.

Zohar

Facing the wild desert mountains, sitting on the slopes of the big central hill, is the Zohar cabin. From above you can enjoy a view of the horse stables, the sunset and the compound cabins.  Located near the “Na’ama” pool, easy to jump in for a refreshing swim. The Zohar stream is in the south of the Judean Desert. At the heart of the creek lies a picturesque stronghold – Mezad Zohar, a relic of the past (from the “Iron Age”) in the form of a guarding station on the important road that passed along the Dead Sea through the desert highland to the city of Arad.

Vardit

Vradit is located on the cliff slopes of the great central hill.  The path to the cabin starts near the driveway, through the acacia trees and passes by the desert cooking area (in the side of the mountain), through the hot tub on the balcony to the cabin. Looking west toward the sunset and the meeting of flood streams in both Ashush and Tsofar channels – during the flood, the view is truly spectacular. The Vradit stream is a narrow river that winds its way through a spectacular canyon, one of the magical canyons of the Middle Arava – highly recommended for a stroll.

Darga

The cabin is located on the slopes of the small western hill with a view of the horse stables and the Edom Mountains. Our lucky guests who come in the rainy and stormy winter days will be able to see the snow on the Edom Mountains. Due to the location of the cabin and the access path, it is suitable for families with young children and also allows accessibility for disabled people (the vehicle can be parked next to the cabin). The Darga (Darja) stream is long and cliffy and flows through the Judean Desert into the Dead Sea. Along the stream are plenty of ridges and caves, it is known for its intense floods and the hike which is considered particularly challenging. During the fall the whole area is adorned with white Squill columns.

Habesor

The Habesor cabin starts at a short winding path between desert plants leading up to the cabin porch. Facing the Edom Mountains in the east on the slopes of the small western hill. Its location offers a pleasant stay for families with young children as well as disabled people (the vehicle can be parked next to the cabin). The Habesor stream is one of the largest streams in the Negev. A unique phenomenon related to the course of the stream causes its lower northern part, its drainage basin, to be asymmetrical – the stream only has tributaries in the East Bank. This is true for tens of kilometers, until the point where the Assaf stream estuary flows into the Habesor stream, and from there continues on to the Mediterranean.
