Head off on an adventure-filled drive from Muscat in a 4WD vehicle to experience Omani nature and history. You’ll drive through untamed, rugged countryside on this full-day private tour and visit centuries-old monuments along the way.
What to Expect
In Nizwa you’ll visit the souq and also the fort, strategically built atop a hill overlooking ancient villages with colorful domes and the bustling marketplace.
The 8-hour tour is priced for a group of up to 4 people, and you’ll travel in an air-conditioned 4WD vehicle through the Omani countryside.
You’ll see ancient rock carvings, paintings that are said to be more than 2,000 years old and a pre-historic hut.
Jabal Shams is the highest peak in the 700 kilometer-long Hajar mountain range. You might encounter shepherds accompanying their grazing sheep in the area. Experience an untamed and rugged countryside, a pristine world interrupted here and there by tiny settlements.
Return to Muscat via Birkat al Mauz, the deserted village of clay.
