Discover the wilderness of Oman’s vast desert
Take a Sharqiya Sands tour and discover why the area is described as a perfect example of a sand sea. These enormous sand dunes run from north to south, some soaring to nearly 100 metres in height. Follow in the dusty footsteps of English explorer Wilfred Thesiger and experience the sheer vastness of the desert wilderness.
Our Sharqiya Sands trips offer a night to remember with a sumptuous dinner on Bedouin carpets under a starry sky. By day, take an exhilarating drive through the desert in a 4x4 or from the back of a swaying camel. En route to Sharqiya Sands you can stop in pretty villages and wadis, including the deep clear water of Wadi Bani Khalid.
We know the best fixed camps where you can stay the night. For the ultimate in desert seclusion, we can arrange luxury private camping deep in the desert. You can visit Sharqiya Sands from Muscat, or you can make the most of the desert and include it in an itinerary taking in the mountains and the coast. However you want to explore this vast desert, we can organise it for you.
