Oman: Self Drive

Cost

from £1,550 pp

(ex international flights)

Duration

9 days

Oman is a great place to self-drive. Our roads are safe, good quality and relatively empty; we'll provide GPS/directions, a mobile phone and back-up. 4WD is not necessary unless you'd like to have a go at 'dune bashing'. This trip takes you to some of the highlights of Oman, including Muscat, Nakhal fort, Nizwa and its market, the dunes of Wahiba Sands, the seaside town of Sur with its turtles as well as some of the prettiest Wadis the country has to offer.

We will tailor this trip to you. Change anything - from excursions to accommodation to places visited.
