Exploring the beauty of a Salalah Farm

Visit a local fruit farm in Salalah, Oman
Comment Badges

I had a chance to visit the farm of Ahmed Al Kathiri, in Salalah, Oman. He has more than 3,000 kinds of trees from around the world, including Dragon Fruit, Guava, Coconut, Nuni, among others. Kathiri also has coffee trees. Ahmed has had this farm for 22 years and prides himself on the variety of trees. A future goal is to have tourists visit the farm. One could easily spend an entire day wandering around this impressive farm.

I'm Erin, and I'm a freelance travel writer living in Sur, Oman. I love traveling around Oman and I enjoy featuring different places, people, and food on my YouTube channel. I wanted to share this video about a man, Ahmed Al Kathiri from Salalah, Oman, who has more than 3,000 varieties of fruit trees from around the world. With more than 700 categories, Kathiri has Guava, Dragon Fruit, Coconut and more. I have been to this farm twice, and still haven't seen everything!

Hi Erin, thanks for sharing and great video!

How would a tourism concept like this be undertaken in Oman? Would Ahmed need to fund and develop his project on his own, or does local government provide support for tourism development in the area (e.g. funding and marketing)?

I"m glad you like the video! For now, Ahmed will have to fund and develop the project on his own. He's very passionate about his farm, so hopefully in the future he will be able to achieve this goal

I drove past a fruit farm in Australia this weekend, and thought of this project! It might give some ideas to Ahmed for his business model.
