We are quite interested in visiting Oman but are not completely sure what to expect. We have heard that it can be expensive, and are slightly worried that it will be similar to Dubai, which we found very sterile.

We are looking to travel at the end of 2014 beginning of 2015, taking in New Zealand's North Island, Fiji and Hawaii. The duration we were considering was 3 weeks 'ish'. Could you suggest an itinerary that would be best for the time of year and a cost? We are looking for a mix of relaxation and activity to celebrate my partners 50th Birthday.
We would like to arrange a honeymoon to Botswana and maybe a few days in Mauritius on the way home. We would like to depart on Sunday 13 July 2014 for about 12 - 14 days. We have done safaris in Kenya and Tanzania previously. Would be grateful for your recommendations and price estimates?
