*For the December and January trips when night-time temperatures can fall below freezing, we recommend a 4 season sleeping bag and a warmer jacket such as a down-filled jacket

As Oman is an Islamic country, modest dress is preferable in the towns and cities. Shoulders should be kept covered, and full-length trousers/skirts are recommended.

The camping on this trip is mostly wild camping with few facilities. Water for bathing will not always be available and we suggest you bring a supply of wet-wipes.
