A two day excursion south of Muscat Oman brought us a far south as Ras Al Hadd and included stops to meet Bedouins, swim in a skin hole, watch dhows being hand built, and ride a camel.
First we went south to Ras Al Hadd to see the turtles nest and to watch the newly hatched baby turtles crawl to the sea. Once again, we had our guide Khalfran. It is an overnight adventure with limited accommodation options. We stayed at the Ras Al Hadd Hotel, the first place on our adventure I really would NOT recommend. Sleeping in tents with the camels would have been an improvement.
Sadly, there were no turtles, but Khalfran found lots of other wonderful things to show us along the way south and then again on the drive back up to Muscat.
Next stop after Oman is Dubai in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). We opted to carry one tour book for the entire region selecting Lonely Planet Oman, UAE & Arabian Peninsula.
Have you visited a Bedouins camp or any of the interior of Oman?
