Jebel Samhan

Remote Jebel Samhan towers over the eastern portion of the Salalah Plain and is riddled with limestone caves and sinkholes, traversed by deep and narrow mountain passes, some of which are up to a thousand feet deep. The desolate flat top of the Jebel is home to one of the last refuges for wild Arabian leopards. Now critically endangered, this magnificent animal is protected in a vast sanctuary.

In addition to the Arabian leopards are many other mammals native to these mountains, including the Arabian Gazelle, the fox and the Nubian goat anS different plant species such as acacia and frankincense trees grow. Take a drive to the stunning 1300m-high viewpoint on the edge of the reserve, offering an exceptional coastal panorama.
