Day 1: Muscat – Wahiba
Morning drive into the Wahiba Sands a vast mass of undulating red and white sea of sand. The ever-changing patterns of the dunes are a photographer’s delight. You will visit the home of a Bedouin Family in the desert, where you will be invited for lunch.
After check-in at Desert Camp, your experienced drivers will take you on some exciting sand dune driving. Back at the camp you may want to go on a short camel ride, drive a sand buggy or try some sand skiing.
Soon after the sun has sent its last rays over the golden desert it will be the time for a BBQ Dinner under the stars.
Overnight stay at Desert Camp.
Day 2: Wahiba – Sur
Our first destination today is Wadi Bani Khalid – an oasis spot in the middle of the barren and dry mountains. It is one of the most beautiful wadis inOman with pools with clear deep blue water. Maybe you will catch a glimpse on the small hamlets that cling precariously to the rugged mountainside.
You then head for the coastal town of Sur, renowned for its dhow shipyard in former times. Unfortunately, the operation at the yard has almost been completely shut down. You will have lunch at a local Sea Food Restaurant and then continue to Ras Al Jinz and check in at Ras Al Jinz Beach Hotel. You can visit the turtle sanctuary at Ras Al Jinz, where at night the Green Turtles, after a journey of thousands of kilo meters will come ashore to lay their eggs.
Overnight stay at Ras Al Jinz.
Day 3: Sur - Muscat
Return to Muscat via the scenic coastal road. En route visit Bibi Mariam Tomb in Qalhat, the picturesque Wadi Tiwi, Fins Beach with its white sand, the limestone Sinkhole in Bimah and Village of Quriyat. Picnic Lunch will be served en route.
Check into Shangri La - Al Waha hotel in Muscat for an overnight stay.
