Your Countryside Room at Kibbutz Elifaz
The rooms are decorated country style and equipped for your comfort with:
• Cable television
• Bathroom and shower
• A coffee corner with an electric kettle
• An equipped kitchenette
• A refrigerator
• A sitting area
We have 24 rooms: 12 family rooms and 12 rooms for two.
The area is abounded with luscious vegetation, shaded areas, green lawns, sitting areas, barbecue grills, playgrounds and an inviting swimming pool (in season).
While we live in a technological day and age, we have come to understand that alongside the desire for opulence, many families and groups are seeking a way back to nature. Sleeping outdoors at Elifaz will provide you with the ideal outdoor trip.
The outdoor sleeping area is adjacent to the hospitality area where hot showers, mattresses, mats, sitting areas for bonfires and barbecues, refrigerators and sinks are available for your use. We also offer breakfast served at the entrance to your tent and if coordinated in advance, we offer hot lunches and dinners as well. The swimming pool is also available (September-May) and suits groups of up to 80 people.
We offer a variety of heavenly meals in charming settings which are winningly coupled with an intoxicating setting.
Our delectable meals can be prepared for any group size. Just choose a location for an outdoor, poolside or cafeteria event!
The tour begins in the cowshed where you will see how Holstein Cattle are raised in the African continent's backyard. We will visit the hydroponics hothouse which grows lettuce (March-August) and then drive to see the wetlands purification method (the first in the Arava). There you will learn how through energy conservation, the power of gravitation and Phragmites roots, we purify the kibbutz's sewage water, cowshed, lettuce hothouses and new generation of our palm groves. We will walk by the palms and orchard where we will taste their juicy fruits (September-February). From there we will go to the observation post overlooking the last remaining Arava dune. There we will speak to you about kibbutz life and about our community.
Tour Duration: 1 1/2 hours
Training Center, Information and Hikes
Kibbutz Elifaz is located at the entrance of the exceptional Timna Valley, 30 kilometers (about 18 miles) north of Eilat. We are located in the heart of nature, hiking and unique desert view-lovers' heaven. As residents and lovers of the Arava, we are well-equipped to coordinate the perfect desert experience for you.
Our Information Center is run by certified tour guides who know the area like the palms of their hands. We would be happy to make suggestions and assist you in planning your trip. We can help you determine the appropriate difficulty levels for your hiks, desired points of interest, types of trips to take (car, on foot, bicycle, camel, etc.) and the seasons of the year which correspond to your desired activities.
We would also be pleased to provide you with guides for groups of all sizes and for all sites in the area. A guided tour by someone who daily, "lives and breathes the area" provides a richer and more unique experience, even for those familiar with the southern Arava.
The spectacular desert views and magical nature experiences are ideal for bicyclists.
Riders will enjoy a single entrance into Timna Park, accompaniment by a cycling guide, transfers, meals and more…
Close to the city, yet far from the noise, our poolside view of the breathtaking desert landscape is magical. This is the perfect setting for any type of event you are planning. Ours is a green and radiant spot in the heart of the desert.
Whether it is a family gathering, bar/bat mitzvah, wedding a friendly gathering or a launching of your company's new product – this is the place.
We know how to produce an ideal event for you! The place will be lit by colorful and decorative lighting, a variety of sitting areas from alternative to exclusive, a wide range of meals, cocktails and an array of splendid gifts.
Your event at The CactusVillage will be a celebration to remember!
