Established in 1975 by the RSCN, this 22 sq km reserve was created with the aim of reintroducing wildlife that has disappeared from the region, most notably the highly endangered Arabian oryx, Persian onagers (wild ass), goitered and Dorcas gazelles, and blue-necked ostriches.

At the time of research, the Shaumari Wildlife Reserve remained closed to visitors while it continues to undergo a radical overhaul. A night safari may be possible to arrange with advanced booking from the RSCN.
