Arabian Oryx Camp

Al Wasil Bidiya, Al Sharqiyah, , Ash Sharqiyah South, Oman

Fodor’s Expert Review

This camp's spacious bungalows are good for traveling families, and the resort can arrange all kinds of desert experiences; the layout—rows of square, air-conditioned cabins—leaves something to be desired. All cabins have two queen beds, air-conditioning, and private baths. Aside from Bedouin singing and dancing in the gathering halls after dinner, which is only scheduled during the high season, there are few things to do in the camp itself. But the food here is some of the best of any of the camps in the area, with a huge selection during both breakfast and dinner (which is included in the rates), including great barbecue and local Omani specialties like sweet, saffron-flavored halwa.
