Depart your central Muscat hotel with a private guide in a private, air-conditioned 4x4. Let your guide know if there’s something you wish to see or do more of: your tour is private, so the itinerary can be adjusted to suit your preferences.
Relax and enjoy the views as you travel south through the rugged Hajar Mountains to Ibra, one of Oman’s oldest towns. Hear about its history from your guide and then continue on to Wadi Bani Khalid, one of the country’s most beautiful wadis.
Drive along the rocky wadi and stop to snap photos of the lush palm groves, shimmering rock pools, tiny villages and steep gorges.
Then, stop at a local beauty spot for a picnic lunch on route to the awe-inspiring Wahiba Sands. Head into this dune filled desert region, and enjoy a thrilling dune bash with your guide at the wheel.
After skidding down the sandy slopes, take the opportunity for a camel ride, and then relax on your drive back to Muscat.
Along the way, stop at the old village of Mudairib to see its traditional watchtowers: pretty, rounded turrets perched on the nearby hilltops.
Your day trip then finishes at your Muscat hotel.
