How to Actively Explore and Protect Oman’s Natural Wonders the IGO way.

UK based adventure tour specialist, IGO Adventures’ new Expedition to Wild Oman; Desert, Mountain and Sea invites avid adventurers on a purposeful journey through the southern east region of the Sultanate of Oman. The exotic destination is the oldest independent state of the Arab world and one of the safest destinations for solo female travelers in the Middle East.  Oman is a diverse and complex region where IGO Adventures takes its guests on a self-exploratory journey to the heart of its pristine nature and culture, where challenge meets purpose and participation meets transformation.

Known for its breath-taking natural beauty, rare biodiversity and rich heritage deeply rooted in traditions and legends, Oman has been on travelers’ radar for centuries. Historically isolated and secluded by the Arabian Sea, the Rub’ Al Khall, (the largest sand desert in the world) and the Dhofar mountain range, Oman is now a fertile ground for unique cultural and outdoor activities.

The skillfully curated Expedition to Wild Oman itinerary is exclusive to IGO’s guests. It takes them venturing in the southwestern region of Salalah, as opposed to Muskat where most travelers go. The area is called the ‘Rainforest of Arabia’ for its extreme weather phenomenon transforming the arid desert into a magical ‘pop-up’ rainforest over a short time period.  From the desert to the sea to the mountains, IGO Adventures offers a diverse range of experiences that stretch the body and mind.

IGO’s guests can travel like the local Dhofari tribe do, with caravan of camels following old trading routes. They can embark on a week-long wild overnight camping under the stars odyssey, hike the world’s highest sand dunes and learn how to drive 4×4 over the planet’s largest golden color sand dessert. They can also explore the Dhofar Coast and the Arabian Sea in the south where resides a hugely important breeding ground for marine wildlife. They explore Oman’s 1000 mile coastline and take part in a plastic beach clean-up mission. This pristine region is now suffering, as many other regions in the world do, from plastic pollution produced by the fast growing and poorly manage fishing and shipping industry. The activities are now threatening Oman’s marine wildlife, particularly the nesting ground of the endangered green sea turtle.

IGO Adventures’ hands-on exploration and involvement in cultural and conservation programs is at the core of the company’s philosophy and operation, in Oman and all destinations IGO operates worldwide.  Each program is unique and incorporates purposeful elements that engage travelers at a deeper personal level and with local communities, natural environment, and wildlife. The richness of IGO Adventures creates long lasting impact and powerful bonds between fellow travelers.

IGO Adventures operates two Expeditions to Wild Oman departures in 2020, October 12th to 19th and November 7th to 14thThe 7-night Adventure package is extremely well priced at USD $3,900 pp., including lodging, all activities, cultural visits, meals, ground transportation, camel caravan, local guides and IGO Adventure host and destination expert.
