“A good break from the Malls”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

This place is not easily accessible by bus or metro. The best way to get there is by bus or metro upto Oud Metha and from there take a taxi. But definitely worth a visit. Very interesting to see so many flamingos and other birds. They have binoculars and you can get a very good view of these beautiful birds. A special thanks to the friendly bus driver to helped us get there.

“Not a twitter but actually fascinating”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

Quite hard to find but well worth. Not a great fan of this sort of photography but actually got really into it. Saw Flamingos, Kingfishers, Ospreys etc... all with the skyline of Dubai behind.

“A Twitters Paradise”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

Dubai is know for it glam and glitz and this is a peace of heaven in this busy metropolis. The hides are well located and you will see some beautiful birds in this sanctuary. Signage on roads is poor so be prepare before you embark on the journey. A twitters paradise

“Great for viewing wildlife and bird photography”
Reviewed 22 December 2013 via mobile

For a country with an excess of shopping malls, this is a must visit destination in Dubai. This is perhaps one of the best chances of experiencing natural wildlife/ bird life in Dubai. I often bring a lot of visitors here and have never seen anybody who hasn't been fascinated by the birds here. You can expect to see different Raptors, Mallard ducks, purple and grey Herons, and of course flamingoes and a variety of other water birds.
Best time to visit would be 9am and 4pm when they feed the flamingoes. Do try to get there before 4pm cos they close by then.
