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.

    Our guide Ilya gave us 2 unforgettable days. He speaks good English, is very knowledgeable about the area and gave us a lot of good information about Oman as well as important background information. You drive in an air-conditioned, beautiful four-wheel drive jeep, pick-up directly from the hotel. ( Tour approx. 400 km ) He always responded quickly to inquiries of any kind. The tour points: - Visit to the Amouage perfume factory with a guide - Wadi Bani Khalid, a wonderful oasis for bathing - Typical lunch in a small town on the way to the desert - Off-road jeep drive into the Wahiba Sands desert to the Desert Nights Camp - exciting drive with the jeep on the sand dunes (high and windy) a unique experience at sunset - overnight stay in a very modern, tent-like bungalow - excellent evening buffet and breakfast buffet - exciting quad ride through the desert - return trip with a visit to a Bedouin tent The excursion is absolutely worth the money thanks Ilya .
