Rocks and Fossils Oman 2 Night Adventure

Our two night adventure starts with us being entertained (and fed!) at a traditional Omani farm by a most interesting and genial host.   The following two days will see us pilot our 4x4s through the amazing Al Huqf Escarpment; the driving is easy and the rocks are spectacular – think of it as a 180km long geology lesson!

When we ran this trip back in early 2019, a number of people from Dubai and Abu Dhabi joined us; all who joined us enjoyed the trip tremendously but be aware it is a very very long drive – you will cover about 1800kms in total.

For those of you who are touring already, the distance we will cover will be approximately 440kms, of which 50% is offroad.
