Desert camping luxury
Desert camping luxury is for me the greatest natural highlight of a journey to the Middle East.
So much of the region is desert, be it the Sahara in North Africa, the rocky desert of Wadi Rum in Jordan, or the sands of the Arabian Peninsula, that spending time here is crucial.
And when there are some wonderful luxurious options, it makes it even more exciting still.
Take the Desert Nights Camp in Oman. It’s as comfortable as a five-star hotel, but hidden away in the dunes.
Each camp has a bedroom, an ensuite bathroom with shower, and two patio areas to look up at the night sky – all appointed with traditional furniture and decorations, and all in the most magisterial of settings.
There are a plethora of desert activities available from the camp itself, with walks, hikes, quad bikes, dune-bashing, sand-boarding, camel-riding and more available in a number of different forms.
The experience can be anything you want it to, but however you take in the desert, it is utterly unforgettable.
And the luxury does not have to come from the accommodation itself. You can make your desert experience far more simple and rugged – just a simple tent and the perfect location under the stars. The feeling of having found your own little corner of the world is a special one. Either way, we can arrange a wonderful, tailormade holiday in the Arabian desert for you.
