The Sultanate of Oman is exceptional in more than one way in this region of the world. The Omanis welcome you to their tradional world which is now slowly opening. The spectacular geography of their country takes you from the remote Empty Quarter to the mountain ranges — some exceeding 3,000 metres — via superb and empty coasts. A history flavoured by the multiple cultures of Zanzibar, Iran, and India. All this makes Oman a country apart and to be explored in detail by those who are fascinated by the world of Philby, Thomas, Thesiger, and Morris.

For a truly exceptional trip you can finish with a couple of days at the Victoria Falls.
