Great way to see and drive through the Wahiba Sands, with Bedouin guide, Salim Al Wahibi.
He knows the desert like the back of his hand.
Easy going and fun to be with.
If you want to drive from the desert camps through the sands to the coast, this is the man to do it with.
Good fun doing dune bashing as well.
He will tailor the trip to your needs.
If you do want to drive through the dunes and do an overnight stop, he can arrange accommodation at a typical Bedouin camp, with Arabic food supplied at good rates.
Excellent guide, excellent trip.

Our family of 6 were in Oman from 25-29 feb 2020. After reading so many rave reviews of Khalifa, I decided to email him providing our travel dates and interests. He was super responsive and back with his recommended itinenery in no time!. And despite some reservation on Wahiba Sand at first, we were so happy that we took up the suggested overnight Bedouin camp stay . It was an experience of a life time. Dont ever miss this desert experience should you be in Oman. What made things fell quickly into steps were Khalifa's detailed 'all in' and very competitive quote. A very sincere and considerate man who even offered alternative idea of booking our own accommodations, albeit with his recommendation, should we prefer an even more budgety package. Thank you, Khalifa, for the thought! Being considerate, he also let us have our choice of meals for fresh seafood. Our regret was Khalifa could only showed us around on the last 1.5 days of our tour before we flew off to our next destination. However, he arranged another energetic colleague of his, Mahmoud to bring us around the culturally and historical amazing places on the first 3.5 days. Mahmoud even brought us to see his old village amidst the rolling mountains! All in all, it was an amazing trip in Oman with its friendly people.

Beautiful pure sand dunes with amazing contours. A few 4x4 land cruisers giving tourists a thrill but generally very peaceful. Try to watch a sunset as it is so spectacular.

We stayed at 1,000 Nights Camp. It was glamping in tents that had electricity and showers (cold water...but still showers). The food at the camp was amazing, and we watched the sun set on top of the dunes. Would be more peaceful without all the 4x4's dune bashing, but it is still about as remote as I have been in a very long time. January is a nice time to go due to lovely daytime temperatures.

This dessert has beautiful dunes, making sunrises and sunsets awesome. I have been in many desserts, but only a few are as beautiful as this one.

We stayed in the desert overnight wild camping. I'm not usually a fan of camping but it's worth it for the beauty and peaceful nice. The 2 hour drive in a land cruiser to get to the camp also helped. Would definitely recommend

10 Cars from the UAE, we crossed Wahiba Sands East To West! It is truly worth the trip with the right vehicles and equipment. Literally off the grid, camping under the stars in pure tranquility.

We visited on a long weekend and there was litter everywhere from the moment we left the bitumen. There were partly used industrial bins at the start of the main dune crossing but many locals dune bashing or camping overnight appear to just leave their rubbish where they stop. The authorities need to blitz this behaviour.
The concept of noisily dune bashing in 4WDs is also very poorly regulated which also detracts from the nature based ambience.

A trip to wahiba is a must do activity when in Oman. Try to spend atleast one night to enjoy sunset and sunrise. Believe it's different. It's magical. Try dune bashing in 4 wheel. Not for the faint hearted.

Don’t miss it , the desert is one of the best experiences you can do. There s a lot of camps where you can stay for one night or longer. Like Golden palm oasis for example. Just three hours from Muskat and on the way to Sur or Salalah.
