Culture, Women's Arts, Camels ... All part of the Bedouin way of life
The Sahara desert, stretching from the Arabian Peninsula in the south to the Negev in the north was home to the Bedouin. The Negev, the northern tip of the Sahara, is the transition of the desert into a more moderate climate, with just enough rain to allow semi-nomadism, and even settled agricultural communities.
In this ecosystem Bedouins settled and prominent people began to build permanent structures as their homes. Also - into this ecosystem small communities of farmers migrated and built their communities. Come and visit these interesting border communities!
