A day trip from Muscat to the Wahiba Sands and Wadi Bani Khalid is an exciting opportunity to explore two contrasting but equally beautiful parts of Oman. The trip begins with a drive to the Wahiba Sands, a vast mass of undulating red and white sea of sand and dunes rising up to 200 metres. The ever-changing patterns of the dunes are a photographer's delight and the area is also host to a variety of flora and fauna. Visitors will have the opportunity to visit a Bedouin house in this wilderness and learn about the traditional way of life in the desert. After exploring the Wahiba Sands, the trip continues to Wadi Bani Khalid, which comprises of small pretty villages embedded in the mountains. The Wadi has clear deep blue water, perfect for swimming and relaxation. Visitors will also have the opportunity to take a hike in the mountains and explore the Wadi's natural beauty. The day trip concludes with a return to Muscat.
