Jebel safari

Enjoy a rewarding full day trip made by combining the highlights of the Mountainous area of Dhofar. The scenic tour includes the rugged Jebel Samhan Mountains dotted with Wadis, gorges, sinkholes and other geological curiosities. Witness Dhofar’s most remarkable natural attractions during this tour. It’s an enjoyable exploration from the coastal area to the top of the Mountains, through wonderful trees, alive with small birdlife, with probably a few wandering camels for company.


Start the tour in the morning by 4X4 vehicles, on a full day safari into the Dhofar Mountains.

Drive through the scenic village of Taqa making a photo stop at the village for a panoramic view from above a cliff, well known as Taqah Plateau.

Then drive into the ‘ever green Wadi Darbat’ for a relaxing stroll along the Wadi bed, surrounded by herds of Camels, Goats & Cattle. In the Khareef season (monsoon period), one could also witness an almost 100m natural Water-Fall, spreading its ‘tentacles’ into numerous lakes & lush green Vegetation.

Next stop is one of the world’s largest Sink Holes (211 m deep & 150 m in diameter), situated at Tawi Attair – also known as the “Well of Birds”, who frequent this location, the year through.

Continue journey into the mountain range of Jebel Samhan to a breathtaking plateau at a height of almost 1700m. This location is commonly known as the ‘Grand Canyon’ of Dhofar, gives one a complete view of the east coast to the one side & the vast ‘Qara’ mountain range to the other.

You will be hosted to a sumptuous picnic lunch during this tour.

After lunch continue the journey from the plateau into the adjacent ‘Qara’ mountain range & drive through scenic Jebali villages & landscape, with numerous photo stops at interesting locations.

Return to Salalah by evening.
