What to Do

  • Walk with the Animals

    See baboons

    During the wet season, many hamadryas baboons move in packs to mountainous areas, such as the Asir mountain region near Taif and Abha. Mature male baboons are easily recognizable by their long silver hair and pink faces. These creatures are highly intelligent and were once considered sacred.

  • Admire an Oryx

    Admire an oryx

    The Arabian oryx has horns up to 68 centimeters long and a bright white coat. Though they were once on the verge of extinction, Saudi has undertaken conservation efforts to save this mammal, which has been reintroduced into the wild in areas like the Farasan Islands, just a ferry ride from Jazan.
