In Oman, with the support of specialists, we offer an authentic nomadic experience in a luxury camp. This travel approach, perfectly mastered thanks to years of experience and impeccable know-how, gives us access to the most isolated sites of the Sultanate.
In the heart of the high peaks of Arabia, the Hajar Mountains and their vast, arid canyons, reminding us of the Far West, are home to a private, custom-built bivouac with a view overlooking the Jebel Shams, the highest peak of these rocky ramparts.
Woven tents, in Bedouin style, overlook the mineral landscape of the region.Inside, the tents are decorated with traditional furnishings, cotton sheets, fluffy pillows, carpets and feature private open air showers.
The meals are served in the Majlis main tent or under the stars, comfortably seated on soft and colourful cushions in ruby red and sienna colours. The electricity is replaced by hundreds of candles and oil lamps as well as a campfire to illuminate the silent nights.
Through the day, in a luxury vehicle, a professional guide takes the traveller, depending on his interest, to learn about the geology of the vertiginous gorges, to discover the perched villages, to visit the untouched historical sites or even to immerse himself in the colourful and scented souk of Nizwa.
After two or three nights in the mountains, the adventure continues through the orange dunes of the Sharqiya desert where the African safari tents of the Wahiba Sands luxury camp welcome their guests. The camp is the starting point for private and personal explorations of the Wadis, green oases where one can discover gardens full of dates, banana plantations, mango and papaya plantations or refreshing natural pools such as the famous Wadi Tayeen and Wadi Bani Khalid, one of the largest in the country.
It is also the opportunity to meet the local Bedouin communities and Wahibas tribes, to visit the Old Fort Mudayrib, legacy of the 18th century or the Umm Naa Tombs dated 2500 BC, or for the more adventurous kind, to dare sand boarding and enjoy some fun off-piste in the dunes with your experienced drivers.
Foodies will be delighted by the organic cuisine with a north African influence and Mediterranean flavours and will enjoy eating outdoors during picnics in this wild landscape or whilst having drinks and admiring the sunset. Finally, our experience in luxury camps in Oman ends at Khalouf, on the Indian Ocean. We drive for at least 5 hours from Muscat before reaching this white paradise where the tents of the Sahara, in their ecru colour, completely blend into the panorama.
As far as the eye can see, the white dunes flirt with the beach hemmed in navy blue. The site is full of birds and flamingos. Not far from there, one can find the salt mine of Barr al Hikman and its moon-like landscape swept by winds and migratory birds…The luxury camp of Khalouf can also travel for the night, according to your wishes, and set up on the untouched island of Masirah, a sanctuary for marine turtles.
