Call 01242 547 918 to speak to a specialist Enquire


Salalah is the capital of the southern Omani province of Dhofar and is the second largest town in the Sultanate of Oman.

Salalah, despite lying close to the Arabian Desert, enjoys a tropical climate through most of the year. Temperatures are very hot in the summer soaring up to 40°, but in winter can fall down to 22°.   The town is subjected to the south-west monsoons from late June to early September and visitors from across the Persian Gulf flock to Salalah to enjoy the monsoon and avoid the harsh heat faced by the rest of the region during the same period.

Guest Testimonial

Zahara Tours took care of us extremely well. Our guide, Haithem, was always utterly professional and we had complete faith in him. I really don’t think we could half seen half the things we did in the same time if we were arranging everything ourselves.
