First time in Wahiba. Everything was perfect. Food was sublime, the setting was gorgeous. There’s nothing to do, so it’s certainly your place to switch off and unwind. Highly recommend to anyone wishing to see true Oman!

Absolutely loved our stay in desert private camp, everything was perfect : the tent, the amazing staff, the food... We really appreciated being completely alone, and déconnected, no WiFi no electricity was better than we imagined :) Highly recommend for nature lovers !

My daughter was visiting me in Muscat for a week so I decided to take her to the desert for a night and booked a tent at the Starwatching Private Camp. What a special experience this was. We met the owner at the office in Bediyah and travelled in a small convoy to the camps. The drive through the desert was great fun and when we arrived at the camp it felt like we were in the middle of nowhere. The tents are first class, bordering on luxurious if you can get that camping in the desert. The food was brilliant and we didn’t want for anything. The sunset has to be experienced and this is followed by a sky packed with stars. When I have other family and friends out, I will most definitely be back.

A fantastic experience deep into the desert away from it all. Wonderful accommodations and food - they really take care of you but allow you to also have solitude. I also did the animal trekking tour and had a great time wandering desert. Perfect.

Feeling alone on earth with a wonderful service! We had a remote tent for two, with our private shower and private eating room and a cook just for us. Perfectly silent in the middle of the dunes. We enjoyed the guided trek to discover desert wildlife.
