Best Salalah Tours in Oman

Night Stay at Bedouin Tents in Empty Quarter Desert Near Salalah, Oman

from 13 reviews

2 Days 1 Night

Specific Tour

Empty Quarter Oman is one of the most famous desert in the world. Also, it is one of the largest desert in the world. It is located after 2 hours drive on the North side from Salalah, Oman. The desert has a lot of uniqueness.

Interestingly, Empty Quarter stretches in four countries. Oman is one of them. The others are Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Yemen. Although most of Empty Quarter lies in Saudi Arabia, Oman has a significant portion too.

Since it is in multiple countries, dune bashing can be experienced in any one of these. However, the one in Salalah, Oman is the best.

Details of the tour is as follows:

The overnight tour will start at 1 pm and is by air conditioned 4×4 vehicle (4WD / Jeep / Land Cruiser). Firstly, the drive will be through the Qara Mountain range  with its spectacular view of the Salalah city. These are Dhofar mountains that turn green during khareef season. The drive will be through these canyons and at an altitude of 800 meters above sea level.

Then, the drive will continue past the town of Thumrait , which is a small town and wilayat of the Dhofar Governorate in southern Oman. In ancient times, Thumrait was an important point on the Arabian peninsula’s caravan routes. Frankincense trees, an important crop, used to grow in greater abundance in Thumrait than now.  Here, you can see town while passing by.

Further you will head towards the graded road crossing the huge gravel desert. Here, you will see Lost City of Ubar (Wubar), another UNESCO World heritage site. It is located in Al Shisr, some 170 kilometers North of Salalah. The ruins of Wubar Archaeological Site are of great importance, both from the point of view of religion and history. It is the gathering point of Frankincense caravans in the past.

As per Quran, the city’s rich but polytheists inhabitants ignored the messages of Prophet Hud who was sent to the tribe of A’ad. After repeated warning to mend their ways, God destroyed the city and all the inhabitants were killed except those who were saved by Allah – the righteous ones.

These ruins are also known as Iram, Atlantis of the Sand, and Paradise of Shaddad . The search of these ruins was done through satellite. The hunt is very interesting.

After walking around the site, you will proceed to the Empty Quarter, also know as  Rub al Khali , to experience  one of the biggest sand desert in the World  by driving and rambling on fascinating sand dunes. The sand bashing on golden sand experience is a lifetime experience.

Finally, watch the sunset in the desert. The sunsetting behind the sand dunes is a remarkable thing and must not be missed. At the time of sunset, also you will be walking bare foot on the desert sand, which is definitely an experience worthy and unforgettable.

Have a dinner on the desert. Stay overnight in Bedouin style tent. You will be able to see stars at night due to absence of the light pollution.

Wake up in the desert, after an overnight sleep in the Bedouin camp, on the largest sand desert in the world.

After the breakfast, leave the desert with memories and proceed to  Wadi Dawkah , a natural park of famous Frankincense trees. It’s a is a stony, semi desert valley, where the density of frankincense trees spreads across 5 square kilometers. Wadi Dawkah is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is one of the 4 components in Frankincense Land.

Wadi Dawkah is a habitat for  Boswellia sacra  type of Frankincense trees. Boswellia sacra is a tree in the Burseraceae family. It is the primary tree in the genus Boswellia from which frankincense is harvested. The Frankincense from this tree is considered the best type of frankincense.

After that you will be dropped to the Hotel. Tour will finish around 10:30 am.
