Al Baleed Resort Salalah by Anantara in southern Oman unveils its new Luxe Mobile Camping Adventures. In collaboration with country-renowned travel specialist, Oman Expeditions, this new offering is the first bespoke luxury mobile camping experience to take guests across the diverse terrain of the Dhofar province, with tailored itineraries of varying lengths. Activities and camp locations allow guests to discover a wilderness of star-studded skies, vast deserts, rugged mountains and long empty beaches.

Travelling via luxury 4x4 vehicles, a sample itinerary would include two nights camping with three days of various activities. Venture deep into the most remote parts of the world’s largest sand desert to find peace and solitude amidst magnificent sweeping dunes in the Empty Quarter. For a seaside option, camp on a stretch of wild and secluded beach along the Dhofar coastline where they will encounter an array of wildlife including spinner dolphins, green turtles and coastal bird life as well as swim and snorkel in the crystal clear water 30m from their tent. Meanwhile in the foothills of the Dhofar mountains, you can step back in time on a trek with camels along the same ancient frankincense trading routes that these prized animals have been following for over two millenia. Oman Expeditions also brings together Dhofar's top local contacts from guides, drivers and chefs to camel herders, artisans and religious scholars to ensure clients have an enriching and authentic experience.

After the day’s excursions, guests retire to the comfort of a luxury camp. Made up of semi-permanent structures, the camp is mobile thus allowing guests to spend night in some of the most unique and remote locations. Each tent has a private tented bathroom with showers open to the skies, comfortable mattresses, cotton sheets, Arabian rugs, candles and oil lamps. The chefs prepare Middle Eastern, North African and Mediterranean dishes onsite using local ingredients. Dinner under the stars is served on a properly laid up table by a fire. Luxe mobile camping adventures are offered from late September through April.
