Highlights of Oman

Wahiba Sands

The epitome of Arabia: this is where you’ll find the rolling sand dunes of many a desert film location. The most impressive dunes can be found in the north east, some reaching an enormous 300 feet high. The Wahiba Sands stretch to the Arabian Sea so, contrary to any assumptions about the desert, there’s a rich wildlife here, including gazelle, mongoose and large migrant bird populations.

The dunes are home to some 3000 Bedu from various tribes and the coastal region is dotted with small settlements where fishermen take advantage of the abundance of marine life in the Arabian Sea. In winter, birds flock to the mudflats and lagoons around Barr Al Hikman.
