THE ADVENTURE

Join us for an 8-day expedition through southern Oman. From the mountains to the sea to the desert of the Empty Quarter, you'll travel and live like the local Dhofari tribe do with a caravan of camels. Travel through the Empty Quarter to the world’s highest dune and end with a unique beach eco-hotel resort. The summit of the dune, found in the Ramlat Jadilah desert of western Oman, is 455m - not earth-shatteringly high. However, it does lie in one of the most spectacular areas of dune desert in the world - the Rhub al Khali or Empty Quarter.

The Dhofar coast and Arabian sea in southern Oman is a hugely important and still relatively clean breeding ground for numerous fish, whale, dolphin and turtle species. However, Oman is developing fast and fishing activity and other shipping are on the increase. With that comes plastic and other waste pollution that threatens Oman’s wildlife. Oman’s 1000 mile coastline is a globally important nesting ground for 4 species of turtles. Plastic waste is a particular problem as these turtles often mistake it for food. As a ‘give back’ to Oman’s environment, the plan will be to clean some of the remote beaches - an easily achieved, but thoroughly important work with long-lasting and immediate benefits.
