During our 10 day stay in Oman we travelled in 4 wheel drives from Muscat to Salalah, travelling through the mountains on gravel roads, along beaches and across deserts (plus a few roads!) Camping in the Wahiba Sands, on beaches and in the Empty Quarter next to 200m sand dunes was an amazing experience, and visiting several local markets was also a bonus.

Charlotte (the tour leader) and Khalid the local guide were brilliant – very knowledgeable on the history and religion – and Khalid shared his own personal experiences to illustrate marriage etc, giving us a rare insight to the culture.
