If you are an outdoors enthusiasts and camping is a frequent itinerary item on your holiday schedule, the sultanate of Oman features an idyllic selection of landscapes that are perfect for this sort of excursion. Most of the Oman hotels you will find will be happy to set up transport to some of the region’s most scenic hotels, and a luxury Oman hotel such as the Al Wadi Hotel Sohar is an excellent host in between camping adventures. When the bustle of Oman gets a little much during your time here, head over to Shatti Quantab near Muscat or the Sun Mountain, Green Mountain, or the Empty Quarter, which all afford ideal landscapes for camping in the desert. If you fancy a slightly different landscape, the Dimaniyat Islands afford a spectacular tropical excursion on your own schedule. If you prefer beachfront camping, a stretch of secluded beach unfurls as far as the eye can travel down the coast within the Musandam Governorate. Enquire at the front desk of your Oman hotel as to where to secure camping equipment and transport to these idyllic locales that will surely come alive once you indulge in some overnight camping excursions. Mostly, you will find camping areas already set up at most of these locales, or you can even pitch your own tents for an authentic experience of sleeping under the stars.
