Moa is surrounded by a vast ancient untouched desert ,located along the ancient Nabatean incense route, between the legend city of Petra towards the seaport of the Mediterranean in an area recently declared as a world heritage site.
Moa Overnight Campground

In short: history and desert all in one. Moa Overnight Campground is accessible to vehicles. It does not include water taps, toilets, showers or electricity. It is only you and what was left from the time of the Nabateans. Moa Overnight Campground is open throughout the year and is free of charge. It also serves travelers on the Israel National Trail, which provides fascinating encounters with interesting people. Beyond this, the campground serves as an excellent starting point for many trips in the Negev and Arava areas.
