In the east of Fars province, there is a protected area called Bahram Gour, which is the main habitat of the Iranian Zebra. This region is one of the best and most valuable natural habitats in Iran due to its diverse wildlife. In addition to seeing a variety of animals, you will also come across many natural attractions such as caves, mountains, and cliffs.

Bahram Gour protected area was a free zone before 1978. Since then however, the General Department of Environmental Protection of Fars has taken control due to the area’s diversity. The region becomes more important when you consider the way it is situated. It is divided into three parts: plain, desert, and mountainous, which contributes to the diversity of vegetation and animals. One of the unique birds of this area, which is considered a native species, is the golden raven, which makes for an exciting moment if you happen to catch a glimpse.

In a Nutshell

If you enjoy seeing animals in their natural habitat, Bahram Gour protected area is one of the best places you can visit. The most important animal in this area is the endangered Iranian Zebra. The Persian Leopard Cheetah used to be one of the species living in this area, but unfortunately, no trace of this animal can be found now.
