Outward Bound Oman


I wanted to thank you and your team so very much for providing Alice and Sophie with the most amazing experience on Masirah Island last week.  It's obviously had a huge impact on them and they will always be able to entertain folks with their many tales from the desert! I think all teenagers should HAVE to do this expedition!!  They suddenly WANT to get in the shower and really appreciate their comfy beds and good old-fashioned home-cooked food!!!  There's a great knock-on effect for the whole family to enjoy!! Keep up the great work and please pass our thanks on to all your team, especially Mohammed and Mohammed!!
Kindest regards,
Gaynor Austin

We all learnt so much from all of the instructors - not just in terms of hiking, but also about Omani culture and traditions, and I think our Arabic has improved dramatically! Outward Bound Oman is most definitely a kind and professional team who were well equipped to cope with all eventualities, and who we both enjoyed working with.

 Each time I visit Oman I am struck with its beauty and diversity – it is such a wonderful place and an excellent location for D of E expeditions (I think I would definitely be looking for a job there if I  wasn't headed for the slightly different climes of Scotland!). It complements the expedition when students get the chance to meet the local people in places like Jebel Akhdar and as usual, the Omani warmth and hospitality shone through and was commented on by all students.  Being able to visit the majlis and have coffee and dates was another highlight, and once again demonstrated how hard the OB team were working  to ensure that our students would be able to experience this as part of  their trip.

I think, once they recover, students will certainly be able to look back and feel proud of what they have accomplished with the help of Outward Bound Oman.

For the two years I served as the experiential coordinator for the The American International School of Muscat I had the opportunity to work with Mark Evans and his staff from Outward Bound.  During this time, I found the Outward Bound organization to be extremely professional, well organized, and kind-mannered.  The organization engages learners in direct experiences that push their comfort level to a place that broadens their horizons.  The adventures provide unique cultural, personal, interpersonal and environmental experiences not found elsewhere.  Due to our trips with Outward Bound we gained a greater understanding and appreciation of the Omani Culture, geography, and people.   I would definitely recommend Outward Bound and Mark Evans for future adventures.  There is no better organization in Oman.
