Musandam Camping Weekend … Oman … The Next Morning & The Journey Home …

Hello again … this is going to be the last post on our Oman camping weekend … basically covers the second day and our journey back home … I’ll try to keep this one short if I can …

We woke up the next morning relatively early but not anything too out of the ordinary … for us anyway … I find even on the weekends now I’m awake well before 8am even if I stay in bed …

_MG_3879-1 _MG_3884-1 _MG_3890-1Once we were up we basically busied ourselves with making coffee … nibbling on food for breakfast … walking along the beach and paddling in the waters …

_MG_3902-1 _MG_3903-1 _MG_3917-1 _MG_3924-1More people paddling or going for a morning swim …

_MG_3926-1 _MG_3928-1 _MG_3932-1 _MG_3938-1 _MG_3940-1The guy organising the trip came round with his polaroid camera and took this picture of Perry and I … it has turned out to be the only picture of us together from the weekend …

Over the course of the next hour or so we pretty much packed up our tents and cleared our rubbish waiting for the boats to come back to get us …

_MG_3945-1Perry and I got onto the first shuttle boat to the Dhow with most of our stuff … while Ian and Sarah caught the second shuttle boat … which nearly tipped at one point it was pretty heavily loaded …

_MG_3946-1 _MG_3947-1 _MG_3948-1 _MG_3949-1 _MG_3950-1 _MG_3956-1We enjoyed the trip back to the cars … significantly shorter than the cruise we had done the day before as we went a more straight forward route … and once back at the cars we re-loaded up and headed back to Dubai …

_MG_3971-1 _MG_3984-1 _MG_3993-1_MG_3998-1After our final Toilet/Coffee stop at a Ras Al Khaimeh shopping mall we said our goodbyes with Ian and Sarah and made out way home …

_MG_4011-1 _MG_4016-1 _MG_4023-1We were back by the early afternoon … after a final burst of energy to quickly sort out what we had brought home and showers we were both shattered … we pretty much spent the rest of the evening sitting on the sofa watching Soprano’s …

That’s it for this post … If you missed the segments from this trip you can see them here … PART 1PART 2 … & PART 3

Till next time …

  3. Loved the complete blog about the camping. We were confused about where to go camping this weekend – Dibba or Khasab. Your blog has cleared the confusion… Khasab it is 🙂
    P.S. – are there any loos around where you camp?

      • Hi again.. Do you have the contact details of the tour organizers. All I’m getting on Google is packages which include camping and food. We want a DIY thing the way u did.. They just drop us and pick us from the island. Seems you need to have a booking done in advance to get into Oman now. Thanks:)

      • We went with a company called escape travels … They only run the trip once or twice a year as they do lots of different trips throughout the year. I’m not sure of any other companies as I’ve not used anyone else.
