Wahiba Sands

In the center of Oman, desert dunes stretch for miles and create what is called the Wahiba Sands. This is where the Bedu people live, and it is a popular travel destination for those in search of the true, authentic and traditional Oman. Experience the nomadic way of life in the Wahiba Sands by joining a tour that lets you ride on the back of a camel and camp in the desert under the stars. The city of Ibra serves as the major gateway to the Wahiba Sands, and this is where many guided tours begin.

The Wahiba Sands is a vast desert territory only four hours drive from Muscat.

Its geology is blended: in the north are littler hills and wide level territories, toward the east the rises heap up to 100 meters against the sea, and in the south, at Barr El Hikman, is a tremendous spread of level sand specked with tricky salt pads and home to gigantic populaces of relocating winged creatures.

Experiencing the Wahiba Sands

A shockingly wide cluster of vegetation call the sands home, as do around 3,000 Bedouin, some of whom you will get the opportunity to meet when you visit the Wahiba.

There are additionally camps to go through the night in the desert, an exceptional experience that begins with a brilliant nightfall, proceeds with a thickly featured sky and closes with the delicate light of a desert day break.

Wahiba Sands to Muscat

Leaving the Wahiba Sands, a beautiful drive goes between the reshaped inclines of the eastern Hajar mountains and the shore, past the staggering water pools and obscure gulch of Wadi Bani Khalid.

On the coast, Ras Al Junayz is a little sandy sound where green turtles come aground to settle throughout the entire year (however the important settling season is July to September) and there is the chance to visit the turtles in the late night or early morning.

From here you pursue the coast, going through little towns and towns dissipated along the shoreline. The zone is excellent, regardless of clear indications of the harm brought about by the 2007 violent wind Gonu.

Closer to Muscat, sparkling white shorelines settle under rough shades, and a fallen cavern has made an amazing sinkhole.
