Magic Camps Wahiba Sands

Authentic Arabian Experience in the Heart of the Desert

Experience a scene straight out of 1001 Arabian Nights on this remote desert adventure to the Magic Camps Wahiba Sands. You’ll arrive at dusk, venturing across the dunes to the cosy camp of just 10 white canvas tents, each complete with a private bathroom. Illuminated by traditional torches, these residences introduce a nomadic and Bedouin yet completely luxurious experience. 

Embark on thrilling 4x4 adventures across the dunes or gentle camel rides atop golden sands, hike with an expert guide and visit local villages. The camp’s dedicated lounge is perfect for watching the sunset before nights of stargazing through the telescopes provided. Dining is authentic, devised by expert chefs who source local ingredients to be enjoyed in Arabian inspired majlis with fellow travellers. While the experience of Magic Camps Wahiba Sands emulates the spirit of remote Oman, comfort is guaranteed. The camp is also proudly eco-conscious, with discreet solar or battery-powered electricity and mindful water usage. 


In Our Opinion

‘This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the desert like a Bedouin nomad, and embrace Oman through a unique blend of bespoke experiences. We highly recommend additional activities before or after your stay at the camp – visit wadis and enjoy picnic lunches inside them, board a dhow cruise to see the natural beauty of Oman, or even float high above the sands in a hot air balloon. The camp can arrange incredible experiences tailored to you.’ 


Guided by the experienced chef, the culinary staff prepare authentic and refined meals based on both local and Lebanese cuisines.

For breakfast it's dishes to provide energy for the day's adventures: fresh tea, coffee and juices, Arabic flatbreads and French baguettes, fresh fruit, jams and eggs made to order. 

At night, expect traditional dishes from the peninsula, like barbecued lamb or marinated fish caught fresh in the Gulf of Oman. Share a table with new friends or dine with your loved one at tables illuminated by hanging lanterns, and enjoy an authentic Arabian soundtrack played by Bedouin musicians.
