Spotlight on Oman

Oman has long been hailed as a must-see destination for adventurous travellers, right back to the early desert pioneers such as Wilfred Thesiger and Bertram Thomas, to modern explorers such as Mark Evans, Alastair Humphreys and Leon McCarron.

Currently undergoing a modern renaissance due to the efforts of Sultan Qaboos Al Said, Oman today is a jewel in the Middle Eastern landscape, with a burgeoning tourism scene sitting alongside a thriving geographic research environment.
