Dozens of women from Israel and around the world are currently participating in the third annual women-only Desert Queen jeep expedition through Israel’s southern region (October 27th through November 2nd). Combining a competitive outdoor adventure and 4WD driving expedition with personal empowerment – and the opportunity to experience the beauty of Israel’s deserts and the warmth of its people – the Desert Queen 2010 journey is taking place in the desert terrains surrounding Mitzpe Ramon, Nahal Barak, Moa and more. In addition to the traditional jeep and outdoor adventure, Desert Queen 2010 also includes special features such as a unique desert-based ecological project. The final route is being kept confidential by the organizers with details only revealed to the participants on a day-to-day basis.
Organized by the Jewish Agency for Israel and Geographical Tours with the cooperation of the Ministry of Tourism, the Israeli jeep expedition is a sister project of international Desert Queen journeys.
