Responsible tourism: Camping tours to Oman

Environment

This tour visits the Ras Al Junayz beach, one of the largest nesting areas for green turtles in the Indian Ocean. An average of 30,000 turtles nest at this beach. The Ras Al-Junayz Turtle and Nature Reserve was established in 1996 to better protect Oman’s Sea turtles and their natural environment. Clients are encouraged to donate to the research centre.

The total protected area is 120km with a 45km of coastline, extending for 1km into the sea. The Ras Al – Junayz Scientific and Visitors Centre offers a unique Ecotourism experience – an unparalleled encounter with sea turtles. It also houses a research library and research facilities for marine biology and archaeology promoting social responsibility and sound environmental practices.

The tour also visits the Arabian Oryx Sanctuary – established in 1994 to help protect oryx and to conserve desert habitat and threatened species. It covers approximately 27,500 sq. km of central Oman and lies equidistant from Muscat and Salalah.

Community

This trip visits several local communities in the Wahiba Sands Desert allowing clients to purchase handicrafts made by the locals. Any money from the sale of the handicrafts helps the local Bedouins to support their families. Local Bedouin guides are hired to explain their way of life to clients on parts of this tour. This enables them to earn a regular living from the visiting tourists. All waste from the campsites is and taken away and recycled. There is no evidence left of any travelers staying in the desert.
