OMAN, historic, colourful & varied.

OMAN Forts & Frankincense, Sands & Souqs, Beaches & Mountains. February 2024

Oman is a richly diverse and surprising country with charming, elegant people. Landscapes vary – harsh, jagged mountain ranges, lush, scented date gardens and long empty beaches. The frankincense trade in the sub-tropical south dates from 5,000 BC whilst the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque is elegantly 21st century.  Less oil-rich than its neighbours, traditional markets flourish with exotic fish and knobbly frankincense, there are remarkable forts, well organized informative museums, striking mountain scenery, mud villages, wadis and peaks plus highly adapted wildlife and plants. With local guides, we explore this huge variety from MUSCAT to SALALAH on the frankincense coast.
