Al Dhakira Mangroves, Al Khor, Qatar 

A large area of vegetation attracting varied bird life, including flamingos and herons, Al Thakira mangroves, can be found just north of the seaside city of Al Khor, and present a large expanse of natural greenery in sharp contrast to the surrounding desert landscape. This area of vegetation with its own ecosystem is notable for attracting resident and migrating bird life, including flamingos and herons.

A great way to explore the mangroves is by kayak, available from several tour operators and specialist companies. All of these can be booked in advance, and many companies offer both morning and afternoon trips. Al Khor is also notable for its fishing communities and is a good spot to arrange a day trip out on the ocean.
