Oman was the first country to reintroduce the Arabian oryx back into its natural habitat, which is gravel desert
, as early as 1982.
Additional species from regional ecosystems such as coastal and mountainous regions, sand and gravel desert
, wadis, oases and aquatic habitats, together with agricultural plants will be hosted in an adjacent desert garden that the donor is planning to build.
The only way to the semi-nomadic village was by Land Rover, across a rough, arid, gravel desert
, not the sand dunes you see in the movies.
