The Saudi Desert Caves Project is managed by John and Susana Pint. They have been visiting the caves of Saudi Arabia and writing about them since the 1980s. Their website was discovered by Arab News in the year 2000 and since then, SaudiCaves.com has become the ultimate resource for the Kingdom’s underground wonders.
The number of caves found on the Arabian Peninsula continues to grow. The Pints have been leaders in the effort to document these geological treasures. SaudiCaves.com endeavors to bring the information from many sources together in one location for the benefit of researchers, explorers and the general public.
The goal of the Saudi Desert Caves Project is to assist in the protection and preservation of Saudi Arabia’s caves by informing people about the extraordinary fragility of the world underneath the desert and the various dangers threatening it.
At the website are cave reports, maps, photographs and many interesting stories. If you’re in the mood for adventure, a visit to SaudiCaves.com is just what you need. And if you like what you see at SaudiCaves.com, then you should read John Pint’s new book, “Desert Caves of Saudi Arabia,” published by Stacey International, available in the Kingdom.
