Muscat & Wadi Shab
After discovering Muscat - Oman's progressive capital - we load up for a 4WD adventure along the coast. We immerse ourselves deep into the natural beauty of this amazing country, as we enjoy the pleasure of swimming in freshwater pools at Wadi Shab and wild camping on deserted beaches.

Wilderness & Wahiba Sands
Journeying inland into the ethereal stillness of the Wahiba Sands - an awe-inspiring 'sea' of dunes up to 200m in height - we camp under the stars in this vast isolated wilderness, distant from modern civilisation hoping to meet bedouin families as we go.

Coast to Coast
In and around the holy city of Nizwa we gain an insight into yet another side of Oman. We discover a country where water is perhaps more precious still than oil; where hillside villages are painstakingly terraced and medieval falaj irrigation systems are still in use. A culture steeped in tradition, livestock auctions are likely to be as animated today as they were in the heyday of the nearby 17th-century Jabrin fort. Next we traverse the Akhdar ('green') Mountains for stunning views of Arabia's own Grand Canyon and return to Muscat.
