Having gotten a good feel for Muscat midway into our trip,we decided to venture out of the city and into the desert. A two hour road trip placed us smack dab in the middle of what looked like nowhere, until we found the single dirt road that led us to our luxury camp in a valley of huge, mountain-like DUNES!
Enormous piles of sand, perfect for the locals’ version of off roading (aka dune bashing). Who would’ve thought that a Toyota could breeze up and down these sand mountains like they were a freshly paved country road?!
Our accommodations at the Desert Nights Camp. We really roughed it with two bedrooms, a full marble bath, and air con. Throw in a two big meals with a view and a meet & greet with this guy:
Pals. Okay, two favorite photos of the trip coming up, taken at sunset on top of the dunes:
Charming as well.
All smiles before we left the next morning. SUCH a fun, unique experience with so many firsts. Officially checking ‘ride a camel’ off my bucket list!
