JEDDAH to RIYADH (11 days) Oasis Caravan

Overland Adventure

Oasis Caravan

Countries Visited: Saudi Arabia

Explore the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as both a tourist and a traveller! Immerse yourself in the largest souq in the country and see a different side to the regime in laidback Jeddah. Discover the bohemian nature of the Saudis in Abha, and explore the beautiful Aseer National Park with its famous hanging villages. Take a trip to the spectacular Farasan Islands, before crossing into the ominously named "Abode of Silence": the largest sand desert in the world, the Rub' al-Khali. Your trip ends with a contrast in one of the richest cities in all the world, Riyadh.
