Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary lies alongside the Dubai Creek, to the east of Dubai Design District and across the water to the south of Al Jadaff. Ras Al Khor in Arabic means ‘The Cape of the Creek’, which is what this place was before the Dubai Canal extended the Creek westwards to the open sea.
Covering an area of 6.2sq km, or 2.4sq miles, the sanctuary is made up of a variety of salt flats, intertidal mudflats, mangroves, and lagoons. Although best known for the flamingos that flock here in the winter, this wetland reserve is also home to both nesting and migratory birds as well as reptiles, mammals, crustaceans, fish and flora.
The sanctuary is fenced off to protect the area and is closely monitored by the Dubai Municipality.
There are three bird hides located on the perimeter of the sanctuary which are free for the public to access during set daylight hours. These hides are the first step in an ongoing project to develop the protected area.
