Volunteer in Israel - Bedouin Style Lodge

Category :: Israel
Share |
The Silent Arrow Desert Lodge is located in Southern Israel, in the Negev Desert, close to the Ramon crater. The only settlement in the area is the small town of Mitzpe Ramon located on the northern edge of the crater. Today the crater and surrounding area forms Israel's largest national park, the Ramon Nature Reserve.

The Silent Arrow Desert Lodge offers volunteers a chance to actively participate in ecological tourism, and live in a unique, beautiful setting in the Negev Desert. The Lodge is an extremely relaxed and unique setting, with opportunities for hiking, star gazing, and unique workshops. The lodge was founded by Shira and Dror in 2004. They wanted to create a laid back home-away from home, with a low environmental impact. Guests at the lodge are invited to feel at one with nature and their surroundings, and have a special desert experience.

GoEco volunteers will assist running the lodge and hosting guests.

Volunteers will live and work at the lodge, hosting guests, and making them feel at home. You will be expected to help out with everyday maintenance (which will include cleaning), but will also have a lot of time to get to know guests and the other volunteer, and to enjoy the desert landscape. The lodge has an active garden for most of the year, and most water is reclaimed for use in the garden.

Volunteers are also invited to bring their own special talents and interests to the project.

Volunteers will have the opportunity to explore the desert, and participate in workshops offered at the village. You should also have a day off per week to explore the rest of Israel, including Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and the mountains of Northern Israel.

Duration: 4-12 weeks

- Full travel & medical insurance
