Isabel, Matt and Charlotte C are here to help give you the inside track.

A tailor-made guided desert safaris is the ideal way to take in the very best scenery that Oman has to offer, and Original Travel can personalise an itinerary to suit your exact requirements.

We use only the best 4x4s and knowledgeable driver/guides. Any itinerary should include the famous fort at Nakhl, spectacularly perched on a rocky prominence in the foothills of the Western Hajars, and a perfect stop on route into the dramatic Wadi Bani Awf.

The Wahiba Sands desert region provides an opportunity to put 4x4 driving skills to the ultimate test, taking on dunes, some with slopes at an angle of over 45 degrees.

Elsewhere, exploration of some of the beautiful wadis is wonderful, as there is often no-one else around, and it is possible to swim in crystal clear pools. Visit Nizwa for its fort and famous Friday animal market.

Nearby you can see the eerily deserted town of Tanuf and the recently restored fort at Jabrin before ascending Jebel Akhdar (the Green Mountain) for memorable views.

Why We Love It

You can even enjoy a self-drive version of this trip, with us providing the vehicle, accurate directions, supplies and pre-booked accommodation and camping equipment.
