Tourist Tip #194 Mitzpe Revivim

Revivim, with its groves of olive trees, is the epitome of David Ben-Gurion's call to make the desert bloom. Even Golda Meir made it her home.

The Negev desert in winter and springtime is famous for its wildflowers and temperate climate; the weather is perfect at this time of year to make a day trip to Revivim part of your Passover vacation itinerary. Like everywhere else in Israel, heritage is never very far away. And in a country filled with dramatic stories, the one you’ll hear at Kibbutz Revivim will stand out.
