Over Night Tours From Muscat

 

The Oman Rial is presently pegged to the US Dollar and the $ has appreciated against most currencies in recent years. So we are acutely aware that these Overnight Tours are expensive. All our Tours are by private 4WD car with your own guide. You will not be sharing with anyone unless you want to. We have picked what we consider the best value Hotels and Desert camps. We do cover quite a distance on these tours. If you are comparing costs with other tour operators please check they are using a 4WD car, that the guide is an Omani and please check distance travelled during the tour to ensure you get value for money

We will arrive before sunset to ensure we witness the sun setting over the golden sand dunes and afterwards, enjoy a traditional Bedouin dinner possibly followed by a camp fire, with a magical sky full of stars.

We then back track a little before turning right past the village of Al Hajir. Now prepare yourself for the adrenaline rush you will receive when we drive up the gigantic cliff face!

Day 1

Muscat – Bimmah Sink Hole – Wadi Shab – Sur

From Muscat, we drive southeast on the road towards Sur, passing the small fishing village of Quriyat, our first stop is at Hawiyat Najm Park where the popular Bimmah Sink Hole is located. The Sink Hole is a lovely place to swim and jump of the rocks or just dip your feet in for a fantastic free fish spa as it contains many “doctor fish”. After relaxing at Bimmah we will drive 20 minutes further down the coast to Wadi Shab.  A hike along Wadi Shab is not very challenging, however it can get very slippery in the rock pools before entering the caves, so please ensure you bring proper footwear that you don’t mind getting wet. To reach the beautiful waterfall at the end of the hike you must swim through two small pools and a key hole cave! If you aren’t confident with swimming, please let us know and our guide will carry a lifejacket for you. Bring a waterproof camera if you have one!

After some swimming, sunbathing and a picnic lunch we drive to the coastal town of Sur, where the Hotel is located. Sur historically was a center of shipping trade to East-Africa, Sur is also famous for boat building and Dhows can still be seen being built in the traditional way that has not changed for hundreds of years (Except the engine of course)

We stay in Sur and it is about 45 minutes to the Turtle Reserve at Ras al Jinz. Optional Turtle tours can be arranged in the evenings or very early morning

Guests please note the Turtle watching tour is not included, the turtles are critically endangered. If you wish to book to visit the Government run Turtle Reserve, please let us know as we must book separately through the reserve. Transport to the Reserve is included.

Note these tours can be fully booked during Holiday peak periods.

Day 2

Sur – Wadi Arbeieen – Wadi Dayqah Dam

After breakfast overlooking the sea we drive back up along the coastal road, this time turning off near Bimmah en route to the majestic Wadi Arbeieen.  There is a large rock pool with a beautiful waterfall. Its great fun to jump off the rocks and swim up against the flow of the waterfall.

After drying off we drive through a geological wonder land and then through Wadi Dayqah to visit the new Wadi Dayqah Dam and reservoir. The Dam was built in 2012 its quite an engineering marvel, the Dam holds back a reservoir that can store up to 100 million cubic meters of water. The reservoir is surrounded by a nice park so a great place to relax and maybe soak up some sun before returning to Muscat.

A quick dip in the hot springs is possible if not too crowded so bring along your swimming gear! Proceeding from Nakhal we drive towards Rustaq turning off soon after, to drive along Wadi Mistal. This Wadi is not so spectacular until we reach the graded road and a very steep climb to the beautiful village of Wukan. Stopping at Wukan we take a short trek up through the village and beautiful fields to reach the top where the views are just magnificent.

After a picnic lunch, we re-join the Rustaq road and then again turn off to drive through the stunning Wadi Bani Auf.  We pass the fearsome Snake Gorge to arrive at the picturesque village of Bilad Sayt surrounded by imposing mountains. We then back track a little before turning right past the village of Al Hajir. Now prepare yourself for the adrenaline rush you will receive when we drive up the gigantic cliff face! Once the roller coaster ride is over, we make a stop for the night at the Shortfet AlAlamin Hotel, please bring warm clothes it can get cold at the top.

Please note this road is often closed after rains so an alternative route must be taken

Day 2

Shortfet Al.Alamin Hotel – Misfah Al Abriyeen – Jabrin – Bahla – Jebel Shams

After breakfast we make our way down to the quaint village of Misfah Al Abriyeen, enclosed by spectacular date palms and cliff faces. We take a stroll along the Falaj irrigation channels and paths. From Misfah we drive to Jabrin Castle, then onto Bahla Fort (UNESCO world heritage site), After lunch at a local restaurant we head up to the Mountain of the Sun, Jebel Shams where we can look over the Grand Canyon of Oman for some awesome views. We stop for the night at a resort high on Jebel Shams.

Day 3

Jebel Shams – Balcony Walk – Nizwa – Desert Camp

After breakfast we drive the short journey to the start of the Balcony walk. This walk is not too arduous and is suitable for most people of moderate fitness. It meanders along just below the edge of the Grand Canyon and leads to a rock pool and an abandoned village at the end of the path The scenery is truly spectacular.

After gathering our breath, we drive back down the Jebel to Nizwa to visit the Nizwa Fort and the Souk

After lunch at a local restaurant we head for the Desert Camp which is hidden away deep in the Wahiba sands to escape all light and noise pollution from the nearby town of Badiya, enabling you to have an authentic desert experience. We will arrive before sunset to ensure we witness the sun setting over the golden sand dunes and afterwards, enjoy a traditional Bedouin dinner possibly followed by a camp fire, with a magical sky full of stars.

Please note we will be staying at the Desert Camp chosen by the BBC travel show when Ade Adepitan and the team stayed there and filmed December 2016 It can be seen on the BBC travel show web site search for “Experiencing life in a Bedouin camp”

Day 4

Desert camp –  Wadi Bani Khalid – Hotel in Sur

After an unforgettable night in the wilderness of the Wahiba sands and breakfast the camp staff will offer optional camel rides and dune bashing for an additional fee. Please inform our guide or the camp staff if you would like to participate the night before.

Please be aware that dune bashing must be undertaken at your own risk

After all activities are completed we make a short drive to Wadi Bani Khalid. The Wadi has deep blue pools surrounded by spectacular mountains and date palms making it a perfect place to soak up the sun, go for a swim and absorb some of Oman’s natural beauty. Wadi Bani Khalid is one of Oman’s most popular destinations and can be very busy at weekends or local Holidays. Bring your swimming gear! A swim in the rock pools is a must

After drying off we go to a local Restaurant for lunch and afterwards drive to the coastal town of Sur where the hotel is located. Sur historically was a center of shipping trade to East-Africa. Sur is also famous for boat building and Dhows can still be seen being built in the traditional way that has not changed for hundreds of years (Except the engine of course)

We stay in Sur and it is about 45 minutes to the Turtle Reserve at Ras al Jinz Optional Turtle tours can be arranged in the evenings or very early morning

Guests please note the Turtle watching tour is not included the turtles are critically endangered. If you wish to book to visit the Government run Turtle reserve, please let us know as we must book separately through the reserve. Transport to the Reserve is included.

Day 5

Sur – Wadi Shab – Bimmah Sink Hole

After breakfast overlooking the sea, we drive north up the coast. Just after Sur we pass one of the main economic life lines of Oman, the LNG plant. This is where Gas is compressed under great pressure into liquid form and is transferred to giant LNG tankers and shipped to energy hungry markets around the world. We make our first stop at Wadi Shab. A hike along Wadi Shab is not very challenging, however it can get very slippery in the rock pools before entering the caves so please ensure you bring proper footwear that you don’t mind getting wet. To reach the beautiful waterfall at the end of the hike you must swim through two small pools and a key hole cave! If you aren’t confident with swimming, please let us know and our guide will carry a lifejacket for you. Bring a waterproof camera if you have one!

After lunch at a local restaurant we drive to Hawiyat Najm Park where the popular Bimmah Sink Hole is located. The Sink Hole is a lovely place to swim and jump of the rocks or just dip your feet in for a fantastic free fish spa as it contains many “doctor fish”.

After relaxing at Bimmah we drive back to Muscat
