  • Embark on a desert safari in search of local wildlife.
  • Bask in the sun and unwind at Zighy Bay.

DETAILED DECRIPTION

Begin your journey in Dubai, a city synonymous with opulence, before traveling to the awe-inspiring landscapes of Oman. Float above the Dubai desert in a hot air balloon and enjoy a multi-course dinner at a Bedouin camp. Sail down the Dubai creek on a private dhow dinner cruise and admire the city’s skyline. Cross the border into Oman’s Musandam Peninsula and spend 4 nights in utter relaxation at Zighy Bay, a gorgeous remote resort bordered by mountains and brilliant turquoise water. Sip cocktails, dine on Arabian delicacies, and enjoy an array of resort activities amidst Oman’s natural beauty.

DAY-TO-DAY

DAY 1: Dubai

Upon arrival in Dubai, you will be transferred to your hotel. Check in and relax after your journey. In the late afternoon, travel into the desert aboard your open-roof vintage Land Rover, a mode of transport used extensively in 1950’s desert expeditions Tonight, enjoy a traditional Arabic dinner at a desert camp set in the midst of the rolling dunes. Head through Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve on an African-style wildlife safari, looking out for Arabian gazelles and Oryx, and then stop in a Bedouin-inspired camp in the grounds of a private royal retreat. Enjoy an Arabic coffee and sit back to watch dancers performing to traditional Emirati music, or perhaps get a henna tattoo, smoke a shisha pipe (Arabic water pipe) or even try the traditional mode of Bedouin transport — a camel.

DAY 2: Dubai

 This morning, take to the skies in a hot air balloon and soar over the Dubai desert accompanied by one of the world’s fastest animals: the falcon. When the balloon reaches a certain height, watch the impressive falcon dive and swoop in the air before returning to its trainer. Relax this afternoon and indulge in a spa treatment, if you wish. We recommend touring the city this afternoon or embarking on a shopping excursion with a guide and chauffeur. Visit modern Dubai landmarks, including the magnificent Burj Khalifa, and explore the Bastakiya area, a historic neighborhood founded in the late 19th century. If shopping is of interest, browse Dubai’s colorful souks, including Gold Souk, Spice Souk and Perfume Souk, and stop to visit the Dubai Mall, one of the largest malls in the world with over 1,000 shops. In the evening, set off on a private dhow dinner cruise along the Dubai Creek, a natural inlet that was once the center of trade. Enjoy Dubai from a unique perspective as you dine on the water with the glittering city skyline as your backdrop.

DAY 3: Zighy Bay

After breakfast, you will be privately transferred to Oman through the Corniche-Dibba Oman Border crossing. Check into Zighy Bay, a stunning resort on the northern Musandam Peninsula, and relax. Should you wish to take a break from basking in the sun, the resort offers a holistic spa and a wide range of activities. We recommend embarking on one of the resort’s boats for a romantic sunset cruise with sparkling date juice and canapés.

DAY 4: Zighy Bay

Relax at your resort today. Feeling adventurous? We recommend a whale shark watching cruise. Known as the largest fish in the sea, these gentle creatures can be found near Zighy Bay from January to March. If you wish, experience a guided tour of Dibba-Al-Baia, a local town, or go sea kayaking along the coastline at sunset and explore secluded bays.

DAY 5: Zighy Bay

Spend the day as you wish. We suggest an outdoor rock climbing adventure, where you will be educated on climbing techniques, belaying, and climbing knots. Or, opt to go on a guided hiking excursion around the area.

DAY 6: Zighy Bay

Relax at your resort today. We recommend a half day dhow cruise around Musandam Peninsula with snorkeling, kayaking and fishing. Enjoy sparkling date juice and a gourmet lunch before returning to Zighy Bay for your last night.

DAY 7: Departure

After breakfast, you will be transferred to the Dubai airport for your onward flight.
