What our specialists say...
An introduction to the varied scenic and cultural highlights of Oman, travelling under your own steam so that you can cherry pick your favourite sights. You'll collect your vehicle during your time in Muscat, one of the Gulf's most attractive and easy going cities. The first drive takes you inland to Nizwa's historic forts and the rugged scenery of the Jebel Shams. After a night camping serenely in the desert, there's a chance to watch green turtles nesting on the beaches near Sur. Finally you return to Muscat along the picturesque coastline for some relaxation time at the beach.
We recommend this trip for:
- Wahiba Sands
- Ras Al Jinz
