School Holiday Oman 4 Night Adventure

Ever wanted to join one of our amazing 7 or 8 day Oman self-drive Adventures but can’t find the time?  Here’s your chance to join us for 4 nights, covering the first 60% of our Rocks, Sea and Sand Adventure.  

Kids of all ages will love this adventure;  we will search for 61 million year old fossils, drive through some of the most amazing geology Oman has to offer, drive along a beach scaring lots of seagulls, as well as crossing by ferry to a very laid-back island.  Will they be able to spot the traditional fishing dhows?  The egyptian vultures?  Some old shipwrecks?
