Oman : the desert region Wahisa Sands

 

 

The Wahiba Sands, or Ramlat al-Wahiba, or Sharqiya Sands, are a desert region of Oman, named after the Wahiba tribe. The area extends 180 kilometers north-south and 80 km east-west, over an area of approximately 12,500 km2.

The area is occupied by Bedouins, who concentrate at Al Huyawah, an oasis near the desert edge, between June and September, to pick dates. At the time of the Royal Geographical Society expedition, this gathering included mainly people from the al-Wahiba (or Yal Wahiba) tribe, from which the name derives, the al-Amr, the ‘al-Bu- Isa, the Hikmans, Hishm and Janâba.
