Your local guide will meet you at the designated meeting point and off you go on today’s excursion in Muscat and the surroundings.
The journey to Wahiba Sands takes about 2 hours. You will travel in an air-conditioned vehicle through some beautiful and interesting Omani villages. Once you reach Wahiba Sands, the adventure trip begins: you will travel through vast, seemingly endless sand dunes that seem to vary in size and color permanently. There are numerous ways to take pictures of the impressive nature and its “inhabitants” or the camels. Moreover, you will pay a visit to the home of a Bedouin family in the desert, where you are of course invited to try an authentic Omani coffee (Mocca). If you like and have the courage, you may also like to try out what it feels like to sit on one of the “desert ships” and do some laps on the back of the camel (extra charge applied).
After leaving Wahiba Sands, travel to Wadi Bani Khalid – an oasis spot amidst the arid and dry mountains. It is one of the most beautiful wadis in Oman with pools of clear, deep blue water. A short walk will take you to the Wadi, where you will have the chance to swim in the clear water or just take pictures and admire the incredible scenery.
After a day full of impressions of some of Oman’s most beautiful sights, we will bring you back to your ship in a relaxed atmosphere.
We wish you a breathtaking shore excursion in Muscat and its surroundings!
