List of Bedouin gardens in the Sinai high mountains

There are hundreds of ancient Bedouin orchards in the Sinai high mountain region around the town of St Katherine, but many have been abandoned for some time. Gardens that have been looked after by their owners at least to some extent are around a hundred, and the real dedicated gardeners are around fifty. We would like to provide help to all these gardeners, but priority is given to those who suffered more serious damages and are not able to do it from own resources. Some gardens need more, others less work - the aim is to bring all gardens to the same level.

Following is a list of the most active gardeners in the high mountain region. The list will be extended if necessary - if a mountain garden has been cared for for the last 3 years, it will be listed. Gardens in settled areas are not listed.

Some of the images were taken before, some after the floods. We will update all images and add information about the garden and its owner and start a page for each at a later stage. Visitors staying at a garden will be able to share their experiences and photos on the particular page.
