Private Salalah Desert Safari

This private guided desert excursion is a spectacular day filled with camel sightings, a colorful sea of sand and cascading dunes at Al Rub al Khali desert, plus the fabled Lost City of Ubar and the famous frankincense trees at Wadi Dawkah. This exclusive Salalah tour will create memories lasting a lifetime!

Your day of desert adventure begins when your private, experienced guide collects you in a well equipped vehicle. Soon after, you'll enter Al Rub al Khali, the world's largest sand desert. This 'quarter of emptiness' composes 225,000 square miles. Colors dance on the slopes and knife like ridges dismay its visitors with magnificence. While exploring, Bedouins (Arabian desert nomads) may approach to offer camel's milk and dates, bringing a unique, cultural experience to the journey.

Shisr is the next leg to encounter the fabled 'Lost City of Ubar'. This remarkable area dubbed the Atlantis of the Sands was only discovered in 1992 with the help of NASA satellites. This center of Frankincense trade was buried in the shifting desert for centuries. Your private tour guide will go into more detail about the town and its luxurious offerings, including local trades of exotic fragrances.

Thereafter you'll visit Wadi Dawkah, a UNESCO World Heritage Listed Site. This vast protected stretch of frankincense trees is quite a spectacle and perfect for taking unique photos. Learn how the precious sap from the trees brought tremendous wealth to the area while opening more communication worldwide with Europe and China.

Booking this private, magical Salalah tour will be a sure hit. Dress comfortably for the season.
