The Evidence of Humanity

An anthropological treasure like no other, Mleiha acts as a bridge between the African and Asian beginnings of humanity. On a 1-hr tour of its undulating dunes and natural ancient monuments, get in touch with the unexplored pages of history. Start your tour aboard a 4x4 SUV, or hop on a sand buggy and cruise through the golden sands of the Mleiha desert. Feel the adrenaline strike as your ride glides over and beyond the dunes in the vast desert.

Discover Ancient Rocks Featuring Fossils!

The next stage of your tour carries over to the ancient wonder of Camel Rock, a formation dating back 80 million years, bearing an uncanny resemblance to a camel head. After admiring the natural spectacle, get ready to spot another marvel in Mleiha, the Fossil Rock. The Fossil Rock arose from the seabed some 65 million years ago, forming this unique geographical feature also called Mount Mleiha. It’s easy to spot several fossils of marine animals that were pushed up to the surface on the rock as you trek along the area. Make sure to capture plenty of pictures from the multiple vantage points, and save memories of this unique trip.
