Let's put it as simply as possible: Do not consider a road trip to Oman that involves traveling any distance from the tarmac without this superb compendium. The Oman Off-Road Explorer is ideal for those who wish to discover the wonders of back-country Oman, yet is equally suitable to equip you if your itinerary is limited to a one hour sojourn from the Muscat area. This volume is lovingly bound in a colourful and sturdy cover that will withstand any amount of bashing while you are on the off-road trail. I particularly like the satellite maps with the roads and tracks picked out with clarity, excellent directions (with countless landmarks), accompanying pictures, GPS coordinates and not-to-be-missed attractions. It really takes the worry out of planning a camping or overland trip in Oman, and allows you to be much more adventurous than you might have though possible. Great stuff!
