Camp in the Wahiba Sands and wander the streets of Muscat on your tailor-made Oman tour

Oman is a country that seemed to escape the notice of all but the most intrepid of travellers until just a few years ago. It now welcomes visitors with renowned Arabian hospitality and is eager to share both the culture and countryside that the Sultan is determined to protect. An ideal destination for guaranteed winter sunshine, Muscat is the perfect base from which to enjoy the spectacular coastline, boasting beautiful white sand beaches, turquoise waters and excellent diving. From here, the imposing rugged interior mountain ranges, Al Hajar and Al Jabal al Akhdar, can be easily explored.
