The Gemenid Meteor Shower puts on its annual show between 4th and 17th December. We just *happen* to be in the Rub Al Khali Oman on the night of the 7th; with the new moon invisible for most of the night and only a little distant light pollution to the North, we will be well placed to see the shooting stars!
Our guided self-drive expedition is into one of the most remote areas in Oman – the Rub Al Khali and Umm As Sameem on 7th/8th December, from only 600aed pp based on 2 persons in one car and 400aed pp based on 4 persons in one car! Own 4x4 essential but no previous offroading experience required.
Our trip will see us cross the enigmatic and forbidding Umm As Sameem (mother of all worries), before an easy drive through the magnificent dunes of the Empty Quarter and a scenic campsite some 200kms from the nearest town.
It’s important to ensure your car is in tip top condition before you go, so our guests will receive a free transmission check for their automatic car at Dexol in one of their UAE or Oman branches
