Oman’s name is closely associated with dessert. About myself I am (Ibrahim Nazer) really keen and adventure travel explorer. So, in this article, I am going to share my adventure travel experience of Oman Desert Safari Tour. I started setting up for my Oman Desert Safari tour ahead of time. While I was taking remarks from my fellow desert residents who camp in the desert almost every month, one of my friends recommended that I must explore the desert life here in Oman. He portrays this place and his adventure as a unique getaway that will add another remarkable stratum to your trip. After talking about this travel story with friends, I decided to drive to the desert and stay at the camp instead of going through the hustle of dry camping.
The Omani desert is characterized by the variety of its animals and plants. In Jeddah Al Harasis the Central Region in Wilayat Hima Al-Wasta Governorate, there are various mammals within the borders of the Arabian Oryx Sanctuary. The desert in Oman is an extension of the Bedouin standard of living with its historical links of culture, traditional and authentic original customs.
When appreciative the diversity of the Omani countryside, people sometimes forgets that Oman is a desert state. In reality, the Omani region is almost 80% covered with sand. For anyone who wants to travel and explore the Oman desert like me, Wahiba Sands would be the optimal choice. Desert camps are run by Bedouins and assemble for a genuine experience and opportunity to pamper in the unique environment. From Muscat, 200 km south-east, right past the small village of Al-Wasil, the streets end. Roads and cars make way for camels and dust trails. In the blink of an eye, you find yourself totally surrounded by sand and even though you have just left the civilization and it seems like a lifetime ago.
This quiet stillness arrives at an unexpected end when we ascend for the conventional from the hill. We jump and hop down the rise that we had recently so exhaustingly climbed. The principles of gravity never again apply to us. After a lovely dinner inside the community tent, we assemble around the blaze and watch the sky, set on fire by a huge number of shimmering stars. From time to time a falling star consumes over the atmosphere raising grins all around. The fog of the smooth way feels like a comforting blanket while we look into the galaxies. Charmed by the mystical environment we slither under the mosquito net in our tent and dream of camel trains and Fata Morganas.
A camel ride was on the top of our adventure activities list. Sitting on the backs of these desert ships, we walk around the morning heat, before a rise slamming with the camp proprietor drives our way back to camp. 24 hours after our landing we feel totally settled and settled while taking in our final gasps of warm desert air on our way back to the real world and towards our next experience in Oman.
