Bedouin making Tea in the Desert, Wahiba Sands, Oman

Discover Oman

I am currently in the early planning stages of a photo tour of Oman, to be held sometime during the winter of 2017-18. Exact dates and many details are still to be finalized, but the most likely time frame appears to be December 6th to 13th.

The tour will include private transportation, stays in major hotels, one night “glamping” in the desert, and the assistance of a local guide and of a professional photographer.

Oman is one of the safest countries in the world and benefits from a very mild climate throughout the winter.

As for the itinerary, here is a preliminary program.

This is an 8-day tour that will start in Muscat. We will drive you off-road across the Al Hajar mountains and the Wadi Bani Auf canyon to the remote mountain village of Bilad Sayt and then down the other side to Al Hamra, Misfat Al Abriyeen, and Nizwa.

From Nizwa we will travel eastward to the Saiq Plateau and Jebel Akhdar and then onto the Wahiba Sands area, where we will spend the night in a traditional bedouin camp in the desert.

Our route will then turn south across the desert, among sceneries of incomparable, wild beauty, until it meets the Indian Ocean at Al Khalouf. We will spend the night in a seaside camp at the foot of the white dunes. From there, the final stretch of the road will bring us back to Muscat, where we will spend one more day visiting the Grand Mosque and the other major attractions of the capital.
