Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary information
Pink flamingos steal the show here in winter, but avid birdwatchers can spot more than 170 species in this pastiche of salt flats, mudflats, mangroves and lagoons spread over an area of around 6.2 sq km. Bordering Dubai Creek, the sanctuary is an important stopover on the east African–west Asian flyway. There are two accessible hides (platforms) with fantastically sharp binoculars. It's a 6km taxi ride from the nearest metro. No advance registration required for groups of fewer than five people.
The Flamingo Hide is on the sanctuary's western edge near the flamingo roost off the junction of Al Wasl and Oud Metha Rds, and the Mangrove Hide overlooks the mangrove forest off Ras Al Khor Rd on the southern edge.
