JEDDAH to MUSCAT (23 days) Oasis Caravan

Overland Adventure

Oasis Caravan

Countries Visited: Oman, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates

Travel from one coast to another on this trip, with a lot of sand in between! Start your trip by admiring the Rea Sea-inspired architecture that Jeddah is known for, before heading South to learn about the more bohemian side to Saudi. Explore beautiful Aseer National Park with it's hanging villages, and take a day trip to the spectacular Farasan islands, if diving and white sand beaches are your thing! You'll get the true desert experience on a 4x4 safari into the largest sandy desert in the world, before the city lights and sights take over your senses. Oman promises ancient history and warm hospitality, as we camp our way through UNESCO sites on local farms. We'll head into the cool mountains to take in the amazing views, lose ourselves in the bustling souqs and enjoy a traditional Omani feast with a tribal leader. The last few days see us returning to the coast, to explore Sur, search for Green Sea Turtles at Ras Al Jinz, and take in the sites of the seaside capital, Muscat.
