Full description

This overnight desert safari will help to expand your understanding of Omani heritage with a stay under the star-lit sky at a campsite in the desert. Take this unique opportunity to step back in time and experience Oman as it was five decades ago. 

Begin your journey in Muscat and head towards Wadi Bani Khalid, where you will stop for a refreshing bath in the deep pools, and explore the hidden Mukal cave.

Relax under the sun and enjoy a nice breeze from the mountains. Tuck into a tasty lunch, and then continue on to Bidiya village. Visit a Bedouin family in the desert.

After spending some time with the family and enjoying Omani coffee and dates, arrive at the desert camp. In the evening drive in the desert to watch the sunset from the dunes and take amazing photographs.

After dinner, enjoy a friendly conversation with friends around the campfire, and then head to your tent or your room, depending on the option you choose.

    I did the tour with Hussein and have to say that he made those two days unforgettable. He took care of me in the best way possible and even adjusted the BBQ last minute to make it vegetarian friendly! I cannot recommend him enough for this trip. Thank you once more my friend.

    Unser Guide Ilya hat uns 2 unvergessliche Tage beschert. Er spricht ein gutes Englisch, ist sehr ortskundig und gab uns viele gute Informationen über den Oman als auch wichtige Hintergrundinformationen. Gefahren wird in einem klimatisierten, schönen Allradjeep, Abholung direkt ab Hotel. ( Tour ca. 400 km ) Auf Anfragen jeglicher Art reagierte er immer schnell. Die Tourenpunkte: - Besichtigung der Parfumfabrik Amouage mit Führung - Wadi Bani Khalid, eine wunderbare Oase zum Baden - landestypisches Mittagessen in einem kleinen Ort auf dem Weg in die Wüste - Geländefahrt mit dem Jeep in die Wüste Wahiba Sands zum Desert Nights Camp - spannende Fahrt mit dem Jeep auf die Sanddüne ( hoch und windig ) ein einmalige Erlebnis zum Sunset - Übernachtung in einem sehr modernen, zeltartigen Bungalow - vorzügliches Abendbuffet und Frühstücksbuffet - spannende Quadfahrt durch die Wüste - Rückfahrt mit Besuch eines Beduinenzeltes Der Ausflug ist absolut sein Geld wert dank Ilya .
