1000 Nights Desert Camp, Wahiba Sands, Oman
The 1000 Night camp is located in an impressive desert basin with dunes rising to either side of the camp. The camp consists of approximately 10 individual and traditional black wool Bedouin tents, each furnished with a bed with sheets and blankets, rug flooring, a small table and chairs, towels and bottled water. A torch is provided in your tent and in the evening, as the sun sets, kerosene lamps are lit along the pathway to the dining area, lending the camp a magical atmosphere. A portable lamp is also lit outside each tent, which you can carry along with you. The 15 roofless shower and toilet cubicles are small and basic but clean and adequate for 1 night (soap is provided) and are located outside of the tent area.
The dining area is adorned with low tables and large, comfy cushions. Cool drinks and refreshing mint tea are served followed by a buffet consisting of traditional Middle Eastern salads and grilled meat. Breakfast is also a traditional affair and will most certainly keep the hunger pangs at bay until lunch time.
