The drive offers some awe-inspiring views of the enclosing landscape. Explore the colonies of Jalan Bani Bu Hasan and Jalan Bani Bu Ali which are recognized for typical Arabic architecture & culture. There’re also many wadis which feature different kinds of trees & interestingly shaped sand dunes with pools of standing water between them.

Rub Al Khali, or the Empty Quarter Desert is the biggest sandy deserts on the planet, inhabiting an area larger than France.  

One of the fondest desert experiences here will be walk alone over a sand dune, out of sight of your vehicle or any indication of humanity and just imagine what it’d be like to be left alone here.  

Overnight lodging at Desert Camp 

Day 06: Wadi Bani Khalid–Ibra- Nizwa: 

After breakfast and hotel check-out, your tour guide will escort you to our 4x4 comfortable vehicle to proceed to Wadi Bani Khalid which is Oman’s most gorgeous Wadis with unlimited date palms & crystal clear water.

After a great afternoon soaking up some sun & discovering Wadi Bani Khalid, proceed northwest on Highway 23 to Ibra. Let your tour guide help you explore many of the ancient mud buildings still active in Ibra. Ibra also has souq to check out that stays pretty active on Wednesday mornings. If you proceed past the souq & turn right you will arrive in  Al-Munisifeh, the washed-up village  of Old Ibra. This is the part of the city that is still stacked with the crumbling old mud buildings from days past. This’s the part of the city that’s still piled with the crumbling ancient mud buildings from days past. 

Your next stop will be Nizwa where you will check out the popular Nizwa Fortress & Nizwa’s Souq. The Fortress is the most visited national monument of Oman, so expect it to be pretty busy. Most of the time there will be food stalls where you can try out all types of traditional Omani food & other stalls where you can witness Oman handicrafts being made live & in action.

The last few kilometers are especially remarkable, with wonderful views down into the magnificent hole of “Wadi An Nakhr”. 

Your next stop will be at Jebel Shams – Oman’s highest mountain – best known for its peak and the view into the stunningly deep Wadi Ghul lying alongside it.
