Saudi Nature & Wildlife

  • Nubian Ibex

Saudi Arabia’s wildlife is defined by its geography, adapting to the mountains, deserts, and warm waters that fill its borders. Despite the relative harshness of the geography, the nation abounds with nature preserves, which are home to fascinating and rare endemic wildlife.

The Saudi desert is home to large mammals and birds, such as the rare Arabian oryx, renowned for their large horns, Nubian ibex, the Arabian wolf, the ostrich, and the sand cat, an adorable, miniature predator that’s the only feline that lives entirely in the desert. You’ll find more cats in the mountains as the caracal lynx calls the mountains home alongside baboons and griffon vultures. The most abundant wildlife is to be found in the coastal reefs of the Red Sea, where everything from clownfish to bull sharks to black marlin to turtles live. Migrating whale sharks also occasionally pass through the warm waters.
