Desert Safari

The Desert Safari in Oman is one of the most important Oman Tourist Attractions. If you want to break away from your mundane schedule, come to Oman. If you are in a mood for some adventure, then venture out for a desert safari at Oman. Desert Safari in Oman is your chance to live the life of a Bedouin for some days. The safaris go Bedouin style. You are going to travel on camel backs and then rest in tents. The guides would be accompanying you throughout. The vagaries of desert, would add to the thrill and adventure. Brace yourself for the extreme temperatures. The extremely hot days are followed by chilling nights. Inside your tents you would only have a lantern for illumination. Doesn't that sound great? Warm yourself sitting in front of fire, in the chilly nights. Do not forget to pack your bags with both woolen and summer garments.



Trekking generally refers to hiking trips which go on for a large number of days. These hiking trips are done through rural and rugged territories. People who are trekkers involve in longer trips as compared to other people. Trekkers trek through all the regions in the world, going from one place to another by using trekking as a mode. Trekking also comprises of other outdoor sport activities which include backpacking & rock climbing. The main reason that makes trekking different from other modes of travel is that trekking is less structured and planned.

Tips for Trekking:



  1. Whenever going for trekking or mountaineering always wear a very comfortable pair of shoes which are specially designed for the purpose

  2. One should also carry all the necessary stuff like water and some food with oneself.



Oman is a fascinating place to explore with its diverse and beautiful landscape.

Six steps to a better kind of travel ( From Rough Guides ) .


We feel strongly that only through travelling do we truly come to understand the world we live in and the people we share it with – plus tourism has brought a great deal of benefit to developing economies around the world over the last few decades. But the extraordinary growth in tourism has also damaged some places irreparably, and of course climate change is exacerbated by most forms of transport, especially flying. This means that now more than ever it’s important to travel thoughtfully and responsibly, with respect for the cultures you’re visiting – not only to derive the most benefit from your trip but also to preserve the best bits of the planet for everyone to enjoy. At Rough Guides we feel there are six main areas in which you can make a difference:



  • Consider what you’re contributing to the local economy, and how much the services you use do the same, whether it’s through employing local workers and guides or sourcing locally grown produce and local services.


  • Consider the environment on holiday as well as at home. Water is scarce in many developing destinations, and the biodiversity of local flora and fauna can be adversely affected by tourism. Try to patronize businesses that take account of this.


  • Travel with a purpose, not just to tick off experiences. Consider spending longer in a place, and getting to know it and its people.


  • Give thought to how often you fly. Try to avoid short hops by air and more harmful night flights.


  • Consider alternatives to flying, travelling instead by bus, train, boat and even by bike or on foot where possible.


  • Make your trips “climate neutral” via a reputable carbon offset scheme. All Rough Guide flights are offset, and every year we donate money to a variety of charities devoted to combating the effects of climate change.
