  • Nice place.

  • By far one of the best camps in wahiba dessert, excellent food, good service, a little expensive but varey good for the middle of the dessert. theres a playstation, billiard table and chilling area for anyone in the camp to use, big rooms with toilet and outdoor and indoor seating area, toilet a little small especially with the family room as its still 1 toilet, but the 1 bedroom tents are excellent and toilet is decent size. Ofcourse every thing is vary modern especially the toilets, the tents are more like rooms decorated from outside to look like tents. Many activities including, bike rentals, dune excursions (dune bashing) room rates include breakfast and dinner buffet.

  • Fantastic meal, superbly cooked bbq and seafood platter done to perfection. I am stuff yet still looking forward to the next meal time! What a find in the sand dunes. If this was Muscat you would not get in without booking well in advance. Oh and the Omani pudding was awesome for those with a sweet tooth. Definitely recommended as is the Desert Night Camp!

  • Desert trip 12/12/12 -14/12/12 First day was ok short night drive seeing only the tail lights of the car in front Slept under the stars Day two drive was a nightmare wondering when it is going to end by day 3 we got the hang of it, came to know that after all we will only get stuck in the sand and a whole lot of guys are there to take us out,it was fun but not for the weak hearted!
