What To Expect - Judean Desert Jeep Safari Tour

The Judean Desert Jeep Tour heads off through the Judean Hills and into the sparse desert landscape referred to in the Bible as “wilderness.” On route we pass by the Inn of the Good Samaritan and pause at the sign indicated we are at sea level. Descending further Jericho can be seen in the distance. The tour reaches the shores of the Dead Sea at 430m below sea level. We pass Qumran, a site famed for the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls. The 2,000 year old parchments bearing the Old Testament were discovered in caves near Qumran.
Here we change vehicles to a 4X4 jeep suitable for the desert terrain and the jeep safari tour really heats up! The tour sets out through the desert landscape scaling steep inclines and racing down into ravines, between hills and over rocky terrain. At the Cliffs of Dragot we’re treated to a panoramic view of the desert and the Dragot River below. Along the way your guide will point out unique desert plants and signs of animal life.
Our jeep safari adventure takes us to the Murbaat Caves where artifacts were uncovered dating back thousands of years including 2nd century documents. Fascinating texts were discovered from the Second Jewish Revolt in 132-135AD including those written by Rabbi Shimon Bar Kochba leader of the revolt. The caves held an ancient set of tefilin proving that this Jewish tradition existed thousands of years ago.
To cool down after out desert jeep safari our last stop is at the Dead Sea. Here we can relax and wash away the heat and dust of the desert. The Dead Sea is 8.5 times saltier than the ocean which makes the water thick like oily syrup that won’t let you sink! The high mineral content of the water and the dry, allergen-free air of the Dead Sea provide natural health benefits. It is also the perfect way to rejuvenate after our desert safari before heading back home.
