Query

A. Tables accessible to the current user

select t.owner as schema_name,
       t.table_name,       
       count(*) as column_count      
from sys.all_tables t
inner join sys.all_tab_columns col on t.owner = col.owner
                                    and t.table_name = col.table_name
-- excluding some Oracle maintained schemas
where t.owner not in ('ANONYMOUS','CTXSYS','DBSNMP','EXFSYS', 'LBACSYS',

group by t.owner,
         t.table_name
order by count(*) desc,
         t.owner,
         t.table_name;

B. If you have privilege on dba_tables and dba_tab_columns

select t.owner as schema_name,
       t.table_name,       
       count(*) as column_count      
from sys.dba_tables t
inner join sys.dba_tab_columns col on t.owner = col.owner

order by count(*) desc,
         t.owner,
         t.table_name;
