Wahiba Sands & Eastern Oman

When you think of Arabia, you think of the vast deserts, of camel rides, and the setting sun over impossibly perfect sand dunes. That place is indeed Wahiba Sands in Oman. Wahiba Sands is located to the south of Muscat, and you can spend the day driving down there, stopping at lush oasis-like wadis, where you can stop for a swim and a walk as you venture south. Spend a night or two in the desert, staying in luxury tented camps, or something more authentic that reflects the Bedouin-style lifestyles that have eked out a living in this most difficult climate for centuries. The various wadis in the region are well worth a mention. Here you may enjoy a stunning off-road drive through sharp sided Wadi Abraeen, find the perfect palm-lined picnic spot beside a clear pool of water in Wadi Tiwi, or enjoy swimming in the deep canyons of Wadi Bani Khalid.
