Sleep under the stars in Oman's Wahabi desertAl Wasil, Oman

In the highest sand dunes of Oman's Wahabi desert lies Desert Nights Camp, the ultimate Arabian glamping experience. Marvel at the majesty and isolation of the desert landscape as you take part in some of the activities, including sunset camel rides, dune boarding and visits to local souqs and ancient forts.

In the evening take your place on a pillow around the campfire, listen to traditional Omani music and delight in dates and local coffee.

Sleep under the desert stars in tents woven from Omani goat hair and forget about the worries of the modern world. This camp is not without its luxuries, as each of the deluxe tents has an ensuite bathroom, living room and outdoor sitting area. Dinner of authentic Omani cuisine is served beneath the sails in the restaurant.

This sand sojourn will leave you entranced by the wonders of the Arabian Desert and reluctant to get back to reality.
