Acacia Trail
Discover nature's treasure trove as you wander 6km through the Acacia Trail that lies within the expansive Sharaan Nature Reserve. Explore sprawling desert dunes and sandstone mountains, pass through rocky cracks and contemplate the historical inscriptions from ancient civilisations on this four-hour tour.

Walk under the shade of giant acacia trees, an indigenous species whose branches provide shade for flowering grasses that dance with the desert breezes. Admire rare plants such as Pulicaria Incisa, an aromatic herb that bears flowers. Observe wild animals that roam from time to time in the middle of the picturesque nature of the land, including Red-Necked Ostriches, Idmi Gazelles, and the marmot-like Rock Hyrax.
