Oman has the most diverse topography among the nations in the Arabian Peninsula.
This diversity of natural resources has helped create an enduring, year round holiday destination.
Between October and May, every year, Northern Oman wakes itself up to play host to thousands of well meaning, responsible travellers, wanting to experience the `real’ Arabia, away from the glitz, glamour and kitsch of modern day metropolises and kingdoms of the Middle East. The temperate climate, cool nights and warm days during this period, spurs the soul to explore and partake of this vast and bountiful land and its people. By June, Southern Oman gets bathed by the showers of the South West monsoon , bringing in huge cheers to a heat beaten land and along comes hordes of guests from with the Peninsula to drench themselves in the only, consistent rainfall in the entire Arabian Peninsula.
No other nation on the Peninsula has such contrasts; long stretches of sandy deserts versus green, rainfall drenched areas, barren ophiolitic and gravel mountains supporting verdant hill stations, perennially dry river courses sporting cool water pools and lonely beaches providing space to be the largest nesting places for endangered turtles.
All this makes Oman a destination with a range of holiday activities.
With more than 1000 forts to visit, a 100 camping spots to camp upon, wadis (river courses) to `wadi bash’ through by 4WD’ s , deserts that invite to cross and conquer by camel or vehicle, souqs (markets) to explore and mingle, numerous diving and snorkelling spots and an indigenous culture to understand and appreciate, Oman has it all!
