Israel & the Palestinian Territories - The Negev & The Gaza Strip (Chapter)
This is the Negev chapter from Lonely Planet's Israel & the Palestinian Territories guidebook.
The Negev Desert may seem sparse but it offers a world of adventure including mountain hikes, camel treks, 4WD desert drives and Red Sea diving. Yet perhaps the biggest secret of the Negev is Makhtesh Ramon, a crater-like wilderness that feels like another planet.
