        1. If you ever get the chance, it is well worth going.
          As an incentive: 🙂
          From Wikipedia.
          One of the last places in which the Arabian leopard survives is the mountains in southern Oman, and the Jabal Samhan Nature Reserve has been set up to protect these critically endangered big cats. Other carnivores present in the reserve include the striped hyena, Blanford’s fox and Arabian wildcat.[6] The central section of Oman has vast stretches of gravelly desert with very little vegetation. The Arabian Oryx Sanctuary was set up here to aid in the conservation of the Arabian oryx, and it is also a refuge for the sand gazelle, the mountain gazelle, the Nubian ibex, the honey badger, the red fox, the caracal, the sand cat and the Arabian wildcat.

        2. Haha, I’m already aware of Oman’s incredible biodiversity. In fact, last year I had a brief email correspondence with one of the key players in Arabian leopard conservation in Oman. One of the things I’d love to do in the future, if I can ever secure funding, is travel to Oman and write a series of stories about leopard conservation there.
