Trip Report Back from 10 days Oman

Jump to last reply

Just came back from a wonderful trip to Oman I did with my mother and brother.
It was booked via a Dutch operator, but they used Bachwan Tours as the local ground operator. They were really wonderful, everything was arranged well and on time as agreed.
We rented a car and went around without a driver or guide, which we found really wonderful since we could take our own pace and see the places we wanted to see.

The itinerary we took was the following:

Day 1 Düsseldorf - Muscat
Flying from Dusseldorf to Muscat with Emirates

Day 2 Muscat (ca. 50 km)
Arrival in Muscat, pickup from the airport and drop off of our 4WD

Day 3 Muscat - Coastal Road - Ras Al Hadd (ca. 300 km)

Day 4 Ras Al Hadd - Wadi Bani Khalid - Wahibi Sands (ca. 180 km)
Overnight in tents in the desert

Dag 5 Wahibi Sands – Nizwa (ca. 200 km)

Dag 6 Nizwa & Jebel Shams (ca. 170 km)
Overnight in Nizwa.

Dag 7 Nizwa – Al Sawadi (ca. 270 km)
Stay in Al Sawadi Beach Resort

Dag 8 Al Sawadi
Stay in Al Sawadi Beach Resort

Dag 9 Al Sawadi
Stay in Al Sawadi Beach Resort

Dag 10 Muscat - Düsseldorf
Fly back to Dusseldorf

I will write the detailed trip report over the coming days, but here are some photo's to start of with :)
