We always go the extra mile to reveal a country's true soul. In Oman we go several miles. At the legendary Wahiba Sands, whose starkly hypnotic dunes form the edge of the Empty Quarter, A&K transport you deeper into the desert than any other camp; staying in traditional tents of black goat's hair and dining on rugs beneath a million-tog duvet of stars.

Returning guests have provided memorable accounts of sharing the Bedouin's daily life and stalking the elusive desert oryx. And just as they did, you'll walk in the hot, sandy footsteps of Wilfred Thesiger - a literary trail that deserves our very best service.

Indeed, to do Oman justice you need A&K's superbly connected, highly experienced team with the finest 4WD vehicle fleet and top-notch local and specialist guides. The country is like nowhere else on the Arabian Peninsula with one of its oldest civilisations inhabiting a landscape of mountains, lush hills and desert behind a stunning coastline without a skyscraper in sight - the antithesis of Dubai.

Take an Abercrombie & Kent luxury holiday to Oman in 2014 and the Wahiba Sands' 100m-high dunes are just the start. There's Muscat with its superb corniche, thriving souk, and awe-inspiring mosque. A spectacular mountain drive takes you to the historic dhow-building centre of Sur - we can arrange exclusive access to study the work of the traditional boat builders - where the greenback turtle reserve lets you witness hatchlings take their first steps towards the sea.

Head inland to Nizwa, with its 17th century fort, photogenic mountain backdrop and palm oasis stretching for five miles, and you've reached the gateway to the Al Hajar Mountains. The uniquely verdant spot on the Arabian Peninsular has terraces of fruit orchards - the succulent pomegranates are to die for - and villages perched above dramatic gorges, peaks and wadis.

If you like the spectacular, you must visit the isolated Musandan Peninsula, jutting out into the Arabian Gulf. Its houses sit beneath vertiginous 2,000m rocks walls, serrated by fjords that offer super diving and dhow trips on the emerald water. It's becoming an adrenaline playground with canyoning, mountain biking and microlighting. You can even arrive in its luxury resort by paraglider; just one more surprise in an amazingly diverse country.

Guest Testimonial

First experience with A&K. Intended to ask various travel companies for quotes but Vicky (Agnew) was so good with her suggestions that we did not seek alternative quotations the suggested itinerary was excellent and helped us decide on a balanced and interesting holiday.
