Camping & Adventure Tours

Oman truly is an adventure playground.  And without doubt the best way to explore this wonderful land is with a 4WD car and some Camping gear.  Oman is developing at a rapid pace with new roads being built and beautiful beaches being taken over to build 5 star resorts. Anyone travelling along these new roads and staying at these glitzy resorts is not going to see the real beauty of Oman and might not experience the wonderful hospitality of the Omani people. Much better to hire a 4WD car and get off these roads wait for the tide to go out and drive down the beach or drive along graded roads in the mountains and camp at some magnificent camping spots. You can explore on your own self driving or we can provide a guide. Another possibility for larger groups is to hire a number of 4WD cars and one guide who will drive the lead car.

Day 1

Muscat – Wadi Bani Khalid ­ – Wahiba Sands Camp No 1

From Muscat we will first drive to Wadi Bani Khalid for a relaxing few hours bathing in the pools and catching some sunshine while reflecting on the Adventure to come. Wadi Bani Khalid is one of Oman’s most popular Tourist spots so best to avoid it at weekends if possible. After drying off we will have lunch in a restaurant in the nearby village

And then we will drive to the Wahiba Sands and set up a wild camp in time enough to ensure we can climb a dune to watch the setting Sun. And then perhaps a few cold drinks around a camp fire while diner is cooking 

This is Wild Camping, nothing to disturb you, no phone calls no emails just the “sounds of silence”

Day 2

Wahiba Sands Camp No 1 – optional Camel ride – Wahiba Sands Camp No 2

Next morning after Breakfast we strike camp before we head into the desert it is possible to enjoy a camel ride or even take a short flight in a paramotor 

Be sure to tell your guide the evening before so that he can book these activities

We now head into the wilds of the Wahiba sands and drive across the desert. In the direction North-South it is relatively easy going so long as the tyre pressures are correct but at the Southern end it gets more tricky so we must all be prepared to get out the sand boards and the Kinetic ropes and push and pull the cars if we get one stuck . What matters here is Team Work

As we emerge from the Desert the views are simply awesome, as you look down the sand dunes and across the Indian Ocean glittering in the Sunlight

We will make camp somewhere here. It is truly magnificent and if you would like to descend the dunes for a swim in the sea just ask your guide.

Day 3
