In the desert

Despite heavily armed, the villagers are very friendly and hospitable.

All desert runs start at around 3 am so that you enjoy the sunrise in the heart of the desert which is an unbelievable experience.

While "Rub al-Khali" actually means "The Empty Quarter", still a few nomadic tribes do live there. They use to follow the rain that very rarely falls but still feeds their animals such as camels or goats. We have built a good relationship to these rare inhabitants so that you can camp in their midst.

All cars used by ORIENTAL TOURS are 4WD only with local guides who know the desert tribes. The bedouin guides also know the ropes of desert travels, know watering holes, dangers such as snakes or sand storms and help with technical maintenance.
