What to expect

Start your tour in the morning hours with one of our 4×4 vehicles and drive towards the "Qara‟ mountain range with its spectacular view of the Salalah plains dotted with thick shrub & woodland. After having a small break in Thumrait town, which was a famous Bedouin settlement, you will proceed west on graded road crossing the huge gravel desert of "Al Nejd‟. Visit the "Lost City of Ubar‟ (UNESCO World heritage site), also called the Atlantis of the Sands! This legendary ancient kingdom is located right in the middle of the Rub Al Khali desert, appropriately known as the Empty Quarter. This once buried city, which was spotted by satellite, gives you a glimpse of the value of work carried out by a team of explorers in 1992, led by Sir Ranulph Fiennes. After walking around the site proceed to the Empty Quarter to experience the “biggest sand desert in the World” by rambling on fascinating sand dunes. A breathtaking overview of the vast desert awaits you on the top of the dunes. On your way back to Salalah, drive into "Wadi Dawka‟ also known as the "Frankincense Valley‟. Get a feel of this wonderful resing and learn how it was used in the past as well as in the modern world.
