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. We can even arrange camping tours along the coast by boat
