Midreshet Ben-Gurion (aka Midreshet Sde Boker) has stunning views of the desert, history, and good food.
It is a beautiful place to visit or stop in on the way to Eilat.
Near the tomb of David and Paula Ben-Gurion, there is a fantastic view of the desert.
Ben Gurion Shack is an important historical site with an interactive presentation on crucial moments in the history of Israel. It is fascinating for children and adults.
We recommend taking sandwiches and salads from the Canaanite. This deli-cafe makes great sandwiches with excellent cheeses and sausages. You can have a picnic on the grass or in the nearby viewpoint, from which you can observe the dazzling beauty of the desert and the chamois that roam naturally and freely.
You can combine the tour in Midreshet Ben-Gurion with a trip to the nearby Ovdat National Park. There you can find an easy and beautiful one-hour route to the waterfall and back.
