I've just got back from an overnight trip in the desert that was both cost-effective (especially compared to many of the options out there) and exactly what I was looking for.

Chris and his team were very helpful on our short visit to Oman from Dubai. We got great directions on how to get there and the room was very clean and comfortable. Lots of great info, look forward to visiting again to enjoy a camping trip or the dolphin watching. Also loved the rooftop and the pool table.

Had a brilliant stay with Chris in Muscat then 2 fantastic nights in his appartment in Al Sifah. Beautiful part of the world, so relaxing and outstanding accomodation. I would highly recommend it to anyone. Families, couples or even on your own. If you are lucky enough to be in Muscat on a Friday you may even be lucky enough...

Chris organised a rental 4x4 for us, all the camping equipment, a room for the last night and gave us heaps of helpful information. But more than that, he and his family and staff and dogs are all fantastic hosts. Thank you, we hope to be back.

We stayed in Nomad Guest House for our first and last night in Maskat and also rented off-road equipment from them. They also arranged the rental car for us and everything went very well. We especially loved the lovely welcome and the familiar atmosphere. Chris and Lorna are really great hosts!
