Chill out desert …

The Rub al Khali in Dhofar changes three times from colors, the deeper you go…But having a real desert experience means….going back to our roots..NATURE…And than we mean with Arabian Sand Tours you go about thirty kilometer into the largest sandy  desert of the world…To find…peace, tranquility, silence, ….

The camp, set up on your request, lays among the golden dunes, referring to the color made by the sun, the sand and the blue sky, with hills of 300 metres high…to walk on, or just to discover the several sand types…and in the evening there is the campfire…and the night-sky full of wandering and falling stars… so perhaps, after your visit, many of your wishes can come true…

Picturing wildlife….

Capture features

Beside incense, Dhofar is an ideal place for making marvellous pictures about exceptional flora and fauna. Splendid example of this wildlife is the exhibition of ‘Wonders of Wildlife in Dhofar,’ the first solo exposition of Haitham Ghalib al Shanfari in Bait al Zubair in Muscat. Through the whole year, but certainly after mid-September, after the south-west monsoon has turned the region in a green paradise. Dhofar is also considered as the birdwatching place in Oman. 30 species of birds are exclusively found there. 24 different birds call the magical desert, Rub al Khali their home…..You are looking for your own pictures and experience,  ARABIAN SAND TOURS awaits you …also with programs on demand.

While the UAE weather news announces ‘Hot to very hot weather across the UAE,’ in the south of the Sultanate of Oman, clouds obscure the sun, a gentle drizzle falls and temperatures top 27°C. It’s the seasonal Khareef or south-west monsoon phenomenon who causes this.
