Home to the Arabian Oryx

Nadat de soort in 1972 wereldwijd als uitgestorven was beschouwd, werd de Arabische oryx in een speciaal daarvoor aangewezen gebied in de regio Al Wusta in Oman opnieuw geïntroduceerd.

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.
