Oman Desert Adventure: Wahiba Sands & Empty Quarter

Oman is one of Arabia’s true gems - a land of rugged coastlines and vast deserts where tradition and progress go hand in hand. This wonderful adventure takes us from the heart of its picturesque capital, deep into mountains and deserts of the Bedu and the old Omani Imamate.

We will take in the breathless landscapes of the Hajar Mountains and the shifting sands of Wahiba, explore the old forts of Jabrin and Nizwa and journey into the vast emptiness of the Rub Al Khali, the Empty Quarter. It is a journey of incredible contrasts, following in the footsteps of the pioneering explorers of old and taking in some of the richest natural and cultural highlights that Arabia has to offer.

Highlights:

  • Explore the charms of Muscat, from the timeless Old Quarter to the immense Sultan Qaboos Mosque
  • Step back in time as you discover ancient ports, medieval souks and UNESCO-listed desert forts
  • Take in the kaleidoscope of colours as the sun sets over Wahiba Sands
  • Get off the beaten track and sleep under the stars in the remote Empty Quarter
  • Spend time in local villages as you drive through the stunning Hajar Mountains
  • Drive to where the desert meets the ocean and enjoy a delicious al fresco dinner on the beach

Tour Includes:

  • Full services of a Tour Leader with local guides and drivers
  • 10 breakfasts, 10 lunches, 10 dinners (typically in local restaurants where viable)
  • All transport included (Minibus & 4WDs)
