Itinerary

Day 1 | Fly to Oman

Fly from London to Oman (7 hours) and transfer to your city hotel.

Day 2 | Muscat

A full day to explore Muscat. We recommend a stroll along the Corniche and a visit to the Muttrah souk, a maze of winding atmospheric streets. The magnificent Grand Mosque is also a must-see!

Days 3-4 | Hajar Mountains

Head to the Hajar Mountains (3-4 hour drive) for a contrasting but equally adventurous 2-night stay. Trek some amazing passes and swim in wadis before returning to your mountain retreat with views of the dramatic landscape that will etch themselves in your holiday memories.

Day 5 | Wahiba Sands

Drive approx. 4 hours to the desert for an overnight stay under a canopy of stars. Enjoy camel rides around the camp and soak up magical sunsets from the top of the dunes.

Days 6-10 | Beach

Following your adventurous foray into the mountains and desert, it’s time to head back to the coast for a blissfully relaxing 5 nights on the beach.

Day 11 | Fly Muscat to London

Transfer to the airport for your direct flight back to London (7 hours)

In our Client's Words...

We stayed in stunning hotels and enjoyed a whole variety of experiences. We explored souks and mosques, rode camels and quad bikes in the desert, hiked in the mountains, swam in a wadi, watched dolphins, scuba dived and relaxed on a glorious white sand beach. Bushbaby very quickly put together an itinerary which stitched together our wish list perfectly. Our travel documentation was comprehensive and once were were on the ground in Oman everything worked like clockwork.
