Desert SafariBeing in a desert country if you skip on a desert safari ride then you surely will leave the destination unmapped. Savor a true spirit of the region by booking an action-packed night safari at Wahiba Sands ( approx. 300 kms from Muscat ) organized by several city tour operators. You can camp in the region too under the clear night sky of the desert. There are several luxurious accomodations available with authentic Bedouin style wooden huts with comfortable beds, a dressing table and colourful carpets (with added bathrooms and other luxuries). Some form of activities such as 4X4 dune bashing, camel riding, or hanging with Bedouins. Desert Camping is best between October and March.
Wahiba Sands Desert
Only a few hours drive from Muscat is the magnificent Wahiba Sands, an awe-inspiring sight. Choose one of the many tourist companies to take you on a 4×4 Dune Bashing excursion. Enjoy the roller-coaster ride of creeping up steep sand dunes to go plummeting down them much to your thrill and excitement – hold on tight! You can also go sand boarding. This is a whole new kind of workout – climb up the dunes with your board to go whizzing down a mass of deep-orange, rippling hills. A very unique desert experience.
