In the Heart of the Arabian Desert
- Type: Tent Retreats
- Setting: Desert
Experience a modern 1001 Nights where the beautiful scene is set under the starry skies of the legendary Wahiba Sands, also known as Sharqiya Sands, a desert region in Oman with sand dunes stretching up to 100 meters high and 170 km long. Extraordinary, eco-conscious, and luxury glamping experience in the heart of the Arabian desert where guests can choose between a private camp set up just for them and their party or staying in a shared camp with other guests.
Enjoy a combination of the Bedouin traditional way of life in the comfort and luxury of the desert tent with an exquisite interior including a private bathroom. Arrival at the camp is its own experience either sliding down the dunes in a 4x4 or traveling the last leg on a camel catching sight of the deluxe tents against a backdrop of golden dunes, surrounded by flickering torch light. At the heart of the camp, you will be welcomed by Arabian hospitality in the majlis, the cozy seating area adorned with Berber rugs where you can share stories with fellow travelers in a friendly space and romantic atmosphere of hanging lanterns. Dinner at the camp is another experience not to be missed - traditional authentic and refined dishes of local and Lebanese cuisine prepared under the leadership of an experienced chef, enhanced by the decorative romantic surroundings and atmospheric entertainment while Bedouin musicians play the ancient melodies of their ancestors. From the sunset lounge situated above the camp, you can watch the sun sliding behind the dunes, transforming the sands and sky into beautiful pink and orange colors. You can also choose from a range of desert activities such as camel trekking, riding the dunes on a sandboard or in a 4x4, hiking with a Bedouin guide, visiting traditional villages, discovering wadis and green oases and in the evening admiring the sky through a telescope and relaxing and sharing stories gathered round the fire. There is no internet connection and no signal - as they say in Magic Camp: 'Leave the real world far behind and enjoy the tranquility of the desert.'
Magic Camp Oman can accommodate up to 10 tents and is operating from October to April. For those looking for a truly special experience, the Magic Camp - Wahiba Sands also offers exclusive use of the entire camp to host your special event.
