“Flamingoes in Dubai!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

The location is unbelievably difficult to find and it was by accident that we finally saw it after couple of rounds in the Ras Al Khor Industrial area, as long you have someone with you who knows to read and follow the signs then you'll be fine. You can park your car outside the facility as you have to walk for few minutes to go inside this watch area. I didn't expected that the sanctuary will be far from the watch house, I had the idea in mind that I will be close enough to see the flamingoes myself, but it turned out that I can see them from afar through a telescope. The caretaker or guard says, it is not advisable to be that close with them as we might be invading their territory. It's fine, telescope was fine. Good thing I have the camera where you can zoom and able to capture them somehow. It was a short viewing but satisfied. Flamingoes are a natural beauty, their colors, their behavior and their line-up. The place is well-maintained. There is a logbook there for every visitor who comes from practically everywhere locally and outside UAE.

“Flamingoes paradise im Dubai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

I never believed till I went there and had a good view at the flocks of beautiful flamingoes. The observatory is nicely build with telescopes and stuff to view the birds. We lots of photography and the best part was that it was so quiet and watching flamingoes was a great experience.
