A Tale of 2 Wadis

Join us for the chance to explore Wadi Sahtan and Wadi Banni Hini over a weekend.  We will drive on and offroad, up mountain tracks (nothing with huge drop-offs though), through rivers and along quiet roads.  

Oman is a geologist’s dream and we will have lots of stops to view and photograph some amazing rock formations.
