Home to the Arabian Oryx

Nach der weltweiten Ausrottung der letzten wildlebenden Arabischen Oryx-Antilopen 1972 wurde die Spezies in einem eigens ausgewiesenen Schutzgebiet in Omans Region Al Wusta wieder angesiedelt.

In the middle of a spectacular desert escarpment, this reserve is home to a small herd of reintroduced oryx. It offers a rare chance to see this magnificent desert antelope up close as there is a large herd of over 600 animals in the reserve’s breeding centre. The reserve, access to which is by 4WD with prior permit only, is 50km off the Haima–Duqm road (Hwy 37) on a poorly graded track marked ‚Habab‘, 110km from Haima. After 23km along the track.
