Dhofar is the most southerly province of Oman and a place of fable and mystery. The frankincense trade flourished here, giving rise to once prosperous, now ruined ports and towns. Prophets bestrode the land leaving improbable footprints and the whole place is veiled in monsoon mists once a year. Combining some time in Dhofar with a trip round the key highlights of central Oman makes for a wonderful holiday.

3 nights Muscat – 3 nights Nizwa and the mountains – 4 nights Salalah
