April 2-8, 2022 All day
This edition of our Rocks, Sea and Sand is currently provisional. It will become definite (subject to borders opening etc) after we have 4 cars booked on our earlier edition on 26th March.
Take the wheel of a 4 litre Nissan Patrol and follow us on our fantastic Rocks, Sea and Sand Guided Self-Drive Adventure to explore a wide range of spectacular terrains in rural Oman. Marvel at the millennia-old rocks carved by the wind and sand into fantastic and impossible shapes. Venture over water to the mystical Masairah Island and walk along empty beached with the warm Indian Ocean lapping at your feet. Camp under an inky black sky studded with millions of stars. Traverse the enchanting Wahiba Sands where even to this day, camel farmers eke out a living in harsh conditions.
Once these remote places were only accessible to the most daring of adventuters who knew where the desert wells were located and had their trusty camel to carry all their provisions for their journey. Today, we too can explore these amazing remote places and marvel at the skill and stamina of the ancient bedu; the landscapes will be no less magnificent, but our journey will be in the comfort of an air-conditioned car.
So, look out your driving licence, check your passport is in date and lace up those desert boots; come join Xpedition Arabia for the adventure of a lifetime.
