I hope you enjoyed the video, and it gives you a good overview of the Alila Jabal Akhdar and the surrounding mountains in Oman. This has to be one of my favourite trips of 2016 - Oman has so many hidden gems and surprises, and Jabal Akhdar (or the Green Mountains) in the Al Hajar mountain range was certainly one which I wasn’t aware of before!
We start our journey at Oman international airport, collecting our 4x4 which would take us down to Nizwa. This is actually part 2 of my Oman adventure, with the first part filmed at the Shangri La Barr Al Jissah Resort along the coastline. After collecting our Landcruiser, we headed South towards Nizwa. At which point we had to leave the main motorway and take a separate route up into the Mountains. This route is only accessible by 4x4 and this is enforced by the police so no taking your Prius up there! After an hour or so of driving up a quite steep gradient we reached the Alila Jabal Akhdar. This hotel has recently won an award of being one of the top hotels in the world, no pun intended, and it’s easy to see why, considering it’s locating it was absolutely outstanding! I take you around my suite and view from veranda. After a sleep you rejoin me from the viewpoint at the hotel, overlooking the mountain range and my word, perhaps one of the best views of my life, it really has to be said. The view was stunning.
Later that day we headed over to an abondoned mountain village to explore, and whilst some of it was clearly quite dangerous (some recent collapses of buildings were evident) we carefully made our way around to view part lower settlement. It was really interested to see how the people would have lived years ago and explore an area that few people will get to see. Especially as in a few years no doubt the village will be too dilapidated to see.
After being wowed by some spectacular Omani history we headed back to the Alila Jabal Akhdar to catch the sunset, again one of the best i’ve ever seen! I’d highly recommend this trip to anyone wishing to experience a different yet luxurious holiday in a new destination which need to be placed firmly on your bucket list!

F or 25 years we have provided deluxe wilderness outpost fishing trips from our Armstrong location into beautiful Wabakimi Provincial Park and surrounding lakes.
Yes, we take you where the fishing is extraordinary , but there is more than fishing. Yearly family gatherings sharing a wilderness experience in comfort. Father - son (or daughter) bonding trips or Husband and wife celebrating a second honeymoon with the added spectacular outpost fishing or `the buddy trips where the tall tales get taller.
Its a big time stress reliever! . how do you think about anything else when you are fighting a fish?
Greg and I had a great week. we caught over 1000 walleye. There were well over 200 in the slot size (>18"). This is the most large walleye that have ever been caught on a trip to whiteclay for me. The slot size protection is working. It seems that each trip has more large fish being caught. Our largest northern was 43". It was caught on a jig while walleye fishing.
Greg and I sent see what you missed letters to about a dozen folks. Hope that translates into a large group for next June. . Fran and I are looking forward to the August fishing trip .

Received your card. Congratulations on 25 Years! We speak often about the great times we had at Ogoki! A Tribute to you both!
Best Regards, Rich Craddock.
What a nice surprise to find your post card in my mail yesterday. Twenty-five years is a long time to do anything; much less a business like yours with all the uncertainties of weather, exchange-rates, two-country economies, etc. There is a reason why your business has survived and (hopefully) thrived. you do the wilderness fishing experience better than anyone in the outdoor sport vacation business.
Dear Judy and Paul,
Congratulations on 25 years. I have many fond memories of my time with Jack at Ogoki. Hope all is well with you.
. . . Nicole will take you on a guided tour!
This website will take you every step of the way for a worry free fishing vacation!
Let us introduce ourselves; Judy & Paul Boucher and family. Weve been doing this for 25 years and have learned a thing or two on how to take the worry out of the wilderness experience. Our staff will help you with anything you may not understand or solve any mechanical glitch right away. In short: we treat you like family!
Just a note to let you know our recent fishing junket to your Mojikit South Outpost.
Ive been coming to Armstrong area since 1972 and have probably flown in with 6-7 different outfitters over the years to numerous outposts. Your Mojikit South camp is clearly the nicest camp I have been to. The cabin is beautiful and roomy. Great kitchen and dining area. Beautiful screened in deck and outside porch overlooking the channel. Large chest freezer and a frig that actually keeps things cold. Screened in fishing cleaning house with running water. Bedrooms that are roomy. Vaulted ceiling the the cabin is a plus. The cabin is centrally located to both the lake and the Ogoki Reservoir.
The boats are the best that Ive ever experienced at an outpost. The inside bottoms consist of flat carpeted panels. easy to get in and out of. 1st time Ive fished an outpost with "dry" feet. The boats had comfortable swivel seats and 15 & 20 hp 4-stroke engines that worked great.
We will definitely be back. Everything about Ogoki Frontier was quality. My two grandchildren had the time of their lives, as did the other 2 members of our party. Thanks for the memories.
