Mammalwatching Oman 2023

Dear Mammal Watchers,

My name is Nick Peeters and this is my first post on this forum, which I only just got to know.

Last month I traveled to Oman with three friends to enjoy nature here for sixteen days.

In the end it unintentionally turned into a rather fanatical mammal trip, of which I would like to share my report with you via the attached PDF.

Hope you like it. Kind regards, Nick Peeters

    What a great report! Oman is becoming a top mammalwatching destination

    Wow, some species I had even no idea that you *can* see them in Oman. Now I feel like we did not do very good job mammalwatching there 🙂 Would be nice to hear some more details on the locations of the sightings.

    Dag Nick
    jouw familienaam klinkt erg Vlaams en hoop dan ook dat je deze taal beheerst
    Wij zijn een wat ouder koppel en waren stomverbaasd van wat je gezien hebt in Oman , ik zou er ook graag heen gaan , hadden jullie een LOKALE gids die we eventueel kunnen contacteren of kan je ons op de een of andere manier helpen met nuttige info
    Mijn vrouw en ik reizen de wereld rond maar zijn voornamelijk op zoek naar zoogdieren
    Alvast bedankt
