Oman – In the Land of Sinbad

SKU: 9774650785



Fabled as the birthplace of legendary Sinbad the Sailor, Oman is a beautiful and historic land, full of traditional hospitality and unspoilt riches. On the surface it may appear almost inhospitable, yet grand towns and cities have grown amongst the sparse mountains, rich on the harvest of frankincense, and Arab tribes have survived for centuries in the midst of boundless desert. We begin and end in Muscat, Oman’s port capital with a modern palace and grandest of mosques. The days between take you to some of Oman’s traditional villages, set in beautiful ravines, and into the desert on a 4WD adventure to meet Bedouin families – the only permanent residents of this land – and spend a night in a luxury camp under the stars.
