I was hesitant to book a desert expedition because the experience was watered down in Dubai. Not the case here! I booked with Sunshine tours and You travel through old towns until you reach the sands. Their are Bedouin people who live in the dessert still.

Being taken up on a dune bash just before sunset to watch all the colours changing was beautiful and the stars in the... 更多

People are extremely nice and welcoming. We had a fire camp at night and someone said: "apparently... 更多
We stopped by Wahiba Sands as a day trip on our way driving from Nizwa to Sur. We did the 30 min camel ride and 30 min dune bash Arabian Oryx Camp (cheaper than Desert Night Camp). The staff at Arabian Oryx Camp was rude but we got our activities done and left. There are a few other activities but... 更多
