Bahrain Flora and Fauna Tour
Al-Areen Wild Life Park (Sanctuary): This unique experiment in conservation was established in 1975 - inspired by H.E Crown Prince lifelong interest in wildlife and falconry. The idea was to create an environment that would protect and allow the reproduction of endangered species. The park has now become the leading conservation organization in the Middle East. It's an exciting drive through in a coaster viewing the animal collections from various parts of the world and seasonal flowers in the garden.
The discovery of oil which has changed the face of Bahrain and later the entire Gulf region forever is acknowledged in the oil museum. This is a small building which is setup on the site of the historic first oil well, founded in 1932. The Museum exhibits photographs of the early oil pioneers. It has some fascinating displays, including drilling equipment, documents, old photographs and a working model of oil rig. The museum is a fine reminder of the extent to which Bahrain evolved in its march into the modern world.
It is located couple of kilometers from the Jabel Dukhan . Standing alone in the otherwise barren desert its source of taking water remains mystery. Stone Age flints have been found in the area and the flourishing acacia tree is a welcome refuge from the sun and provides a popular picnic spot.
