The Mamshit Camel Ranch is a camel farm located on the edge of a desert cliff in the Negev. It sits nestled in the golden sands, near the ruins of the ancient Nabatean city Kurnub-Mamshit (thirty minutes from Be'er Sheva, two hours from Tel aviv and forty-five minutes from the Dead Sea hotels). On site are two authentic Bedouin tents made of sheep wool and goat hair that are specially designed for receiving guests and groups of visitors and a camel yard that is home to thirty-five trained camels.
