Full-Day Trip to Wahiba Sands
Around three hours to the south of Muscat lie the rolling sand dunes of the Wahiba Sands, a stark and stunning desert with an ever-changing landscape. Dune bashing makes for an exhilarating visit, and contrasts to a swim in the beautiful Wadi Bani Khaled.
Drive south of Muscat to visit the stunning wilderness of the Wahiba Sands, where you can visit a Bedouin house amidst the dramatic sand dunes which can reach up to 200 metres high. The sands are also home not only to the Bedouin, but to a host of flora and fauna including the Arabian oryx.
Contrast your desert visit with a swim in Wadi Bani Khaled. Filled with clear blue water and fringed by date palms, it is a wonderfully refreshing way to cool off on a warm day.
