Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary

About 15 minutes from the centre of old Dubai at the head of the Dubai Creek is the Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary, home to more than 300 types of flora and fauna. In the colder months (October to May) Dubai’s population of 3000 flamingos flock to hides along the bank of the creek, creating a sea of pink against the backdrop of Dubai’s bustling metropolis. Binoculars can be borrowed to view the birds from a distance. The sanctuary also goes by the name of the Dubai Creek Wildlife and Waterbird Sanctuary or simply, Al Khor Nature Reserve.
