Jabal AlFil (Elephant Rock)
This monolithic sandstone formation is a wonder to gaze upon at any time of the day, but dusk is particularly magical. As the sun sets, colours dance in the sky and this epic elephant turns a magnificent shade of red. When night falls, the skies come alive with the twinkling of thousands of stars.
Enjoy the spectacle from sunken seating dotted around the site, or gather around a roaring fire pit to warm up on cooler desert nights. You'll also find a cafe and a restaurant open for most of the year, offering a wide range of food and refreshment into the night.
- No tickets are necessary; Elephant Rock is free and open to all to enjoy.
- Children are welcome.
- We recommend you wear protective clothing and sun protection if visiting during the daytime. If visiting at night, we recommend bringing a jacket or warm clothing as the desert can be much cooler at night outside of the city.
