Safari Desert Camp

, Ash Sharqiyah South, Oman

Fodor’s Expert Review

This traditional, electricity-free camp is one of the most remote, with tents scattered around the site, each nicely furnished with carpets and two beds as well as an open-topped tent for the toilet and shower. If the camp is still not remote enough for your liking, there is the option for "wild camping" in a tent a few miles away from the main site; other than your meals being delivered, you will be left in peaceful solitude. Local Omani breakfast and dinner are included in the rate, and additional experiences, from Bedouin musical performances and henna tattooing to camel safaris and professional drivers to take you deeper into the desert, can be booked. Transfers from Bidiyah are available for a hefty additional fee. Though the camp is open year-round, we do not recommend booking at this camp from mid-May through mid-August due to the lack of air-conditioning.

PROS

  • more remote than other camps
  • eco-friendly

CONS

  • add-ons add up fast, and a visit can get expensive
  • difficult to find, and guide is expensive add-on
