Be an Adventurer – Not a Tourist

Oman possesses unrivalled natural beauty and diversity. We are here to help you discover it authentically and enjoyably. We also want to ensure Oman stays this way in the future, so we focus on responsible business practice and giving back to the land and its people.

Our Story

iDrive 4×4 is your typical ‘hobby-turned-into-business venture story’. It was founded by two Dutch passionate 4×4 off-roaders living in Dubai, Rob van Klingeren and Peter Scholten. They had been driving on the Emirati dunes for some time when they first witnessed the enthralling beauty of Oman on a group trip in 2015. Captivated, they and their friends returned several times and came to be increasingly fond of the country. During one of their trips, sitting by the campfire, they fantasized about the idea of turning these awesome experiences into a business opportunity. Rob and Peter gradually built up on their idea, and within a year they had officially started iDrive 4×4 BV in 2017 and guided their first commercial off-road camping expedition for family and friends in Oman.

The foundation of iDrive 4×4

Driving around Oman, they found wild species, ancient wadi’s, beaches, desert dunes, and native Omani villages and culture. What made these experiences so profound to them was the freedom of discovering all of this themselves. The business philosophy of iDrive 4×4 came to rest on the own experience of Rob and Peter. The equipment rental would aid likeminded travelers to explore the country while they ensured that their tours provided guidance while still allowing their customers plenty of agency in their traveling experience.

 

iDrive 4×4 is now a growing company with 15 employees, offices in The Netherlands, UAE and Oman, and a bright future.
