Ein Gedi Botanical Garden has a wide range of plants from the Ein Gedi and the Dead Sea region. Many of the plants are rare or endangered. Many of the plants are adapted to an arid climate. The Botanical Gardens function as a sanctuary for animals and birds. It's a good place to wander around, directions are clear and obvious. The Botanical Garden is associated with the Ein Gedi Kibbutz

Ein Gedi is an oasis in the desert. The Ein Gedi Botanical Garden is very interesting because it is made up of arid region plants. It's well worth the time wending your way around the garden, it has much interesting dry-region flora. The Ein Gedi Botanical Garden is now well-established, it's something interesting to do when you visit Ein Gedi.

This botanic garden specialises in arid region plants. The Ein Gede Botanic Gardens are quite fascinating, even unique. It's worth wandering around for an hour or so. Signage is not great, but it's not really important. The plants come from Isael and from places far away. By the way, the sun can get very hot, remember to take a hat.

Unfortunately this potentially beautiful site is not enough served by informative printed matter or panels that you would expect when you get there. Wandering in the kibbutz looking for the next baobab under the desert sun is challenging specially if you have young children with you.

The owners made this a very unique type of botanical garden. They created very unique structures throughout the garden to complement the vegetation. Worth an hour or two visit.

The plants were beautiful! The history of how the gardens were planted was interesting. There were varieties of plants from places far and near.

It was so very relaxing and peaceful. The trails were easy to walk and scenic. My kids were blown away by how cold the water was in the middle of a desert. There was also tones of wild life that had r of humans. We didn’t see people feeding them (which was good), they just seemed to accept tourists as sort of part of the landscape.

Very clean, well kept, unique flowers, plants and trees, some from Africa. It takes about 20 minutes to cover the route. Not a place to stop for a picnic - it is a residential area.

Our tour group just went up to the waterfall, but that was a great experience. We walked up the trail to a rocky place with railings on steps to get down to the pool and waterfall. Quite steep. You can take your shoes off and Wade in the shallow water and go under the waterfall. I recommend hiking sandals. There is also a trail that goes above the falls to see the Brook that feeds the waterfall. I didn't have time to go to the top. Nice gardens on the trail back. Lovely and peaceful place.

Ein Gedi is a kibbutz (communal village) situated next to the Dead Sea and two sweet water streams (Arugot and David). The entire kibbutz is also a botanical garden, so your tour, although marked on a map, is essentially a tour of the kibbutz. The area is very hot, so you're advised to carry plenty of water, but the scenery is breathtaking. You'll find amazing vegetation, which contrasts the surrounding desert. There's also a small museum worth visiting, and a little desert animals zoo. Highly recommended if you're in the Dead Sea and Masada area.
