Oman showcases encounters of a sea turtle kind
The Ministry of Tourism for The Sultanate of Oman will again beat the ATM, where representatives from Oman's hospitality industry will come together to showcase their products and services to the region's travel trade.
Summer in Oman is best known for Al Khareef Festival, the time in July and August when visitors flock to the Dhofar region of Oman to experience the cooler rainy climate of the sub-tropical south. In Salalah, the city is packed with visitors from around the GCC, who come to experience the unique climate and a wide range of activities centred around the whole family.
However, Oman in the summer isn't just about Salalah. The rest of Oman is making an extra special effort this summer to welcome visitors from around the Gulf region. Whether Arab nationals or resident expatriates, activities have been planned to ensure that everyone has a good time and experience the best of what Oman has to offer from June to September.
One of these experiences is located in the heart of the Ras al Hadd Nature Reserve. The Ras al-Jinz Project will offer a unique eco-tourism experience and encounters with sea turtles. This is the largest site for green turtles across the whole of the Indian Ocean.
The Ras al-Jinz Project contains a visitor centre, housing a guest lodge with elegant rooms, a themed restaurant and lounge. From here visitors can take tours to watch turtles and also go on an archeological guided tour. The project aims to offer high quality tourism services and will contribute to the conservation of the nature and wildlife of Oman, while ensuring socio-economic development for the local community.
The Ras al-Jinz project also houses a modern interactive natural history and archeological museum, research labs & library.
The project will be represented at the ATM on the Oman Tourism stand number ME540.
