Riche en Histoire d’Oman

Située dans le nord-ouest d’Oman, près de la région d’Al-Dhahirah, la région d’Al-Buraimi est une plaine semi-désertique qui descend des flancs sud des monts Hajar de l’ouest. Les ruines de la région, comme celles des villages de Sharm et de Madhbah, témoignent de l’existence des anciennes routes commerciales.

De la « vallée des fossiles » du Jebel Huwayah aux nombreux forts qui ponctuent les villages et les paysages de l’intérieur, sans oublier le sable blond du Rub Al-Khali (Quart vide), la région séduit tous les aventuriers.

La ville d’Al-Buraimi, à environ 370 km de Mascate, sert de poste-frontière traditionnel entre le Sultanat et la ville d’Al-Aïn (EAU).
