Old Oman blends nature’s aesthetics with rich cultural heritage, symbolised by Nizwa, an ancient town barely two-hours drive from Muscat.
You’re greeted by a vast canopy of date palms, the greenery hiding a remarkable irrigation system that’s evolved over millennia. Travel into the town’s heart to find Nizwa Souk, redolent with the atmosphere of yesteryear.
With a local guide you will visit on a Friday morning, when the traditional camel and livestock market takes place before the Friday prayer. And from here you will delve into Nizwa’s history, complete with glasses of sweet minty tea.
