We felt like we were in a tropical paradise. All the flowers/plants were planted in such a way that we felt we were walking into a painting.

We visit the Kibbutz Ein Gedi in the winter. The weather is desertic so it was not cold, we managed with a thin sweater. The place is a giant botanical garden with plants and trees that are 40 years old and some brought from distant...More

Over 400 species wonderfully maintained and labeled show the types of species that can thrive in this dry hills. Many local birds visit these plantings, sunbirds and so on. We stayed at the hotel here and the grounds were the highlight.

I expected a dull quick walkaround but instead we had a lengthy fun tour guided by Daniella and Yehuda. We learned about the history of the kibbutz, the garden planted around the living space and the personal history of this lovely couple. We loved it.

it is correct. The garden is open daily, including Shabbat, for people who wish to visit individually. The visitor gets a nice map with lots of information about many plants in the garden.
