The Wahiba Sands is an undulating expanse of shimmering sand that seems to stretch endlessly along the eastern part of Oman. Situated in the Ash-Sharqiyyah region, the beautiful sand dunes promise you a desert experience like no other. Exciting off-road safaris in 4×4 vehicles across the shifting dunes guarantee an adrenaline rush. Guided walks across the soaring dunes and leisurely camel rides as the sun goes down make for cherished memories. Remote villages amid the arid landscape offer a glimpse into the traditional Bedouin way of life that is fast becoming a rarity. Overnight camping trips under the starry sky, be it in indulgent desert camps or in rustic tents, leave you with the experience of a lifetime. Those short on time can have just as much fun with a sumptuous picnic at one of the camps. Top it off with live cultural performances for the ultimate desert holiday!
