For a chance to observe these beautiful and unusual looking birds in their natural habitat, take a trip to Flamingo Sanctuary, and drive around its picturesque shores. The birds have a lot of protected space here to catch and eat the pink shrimp they feed on, and the lake offers many great photo opportunities. Flamingos are here in abundance, and from January to July the lake is home to upwards of 15000 birds. Bring your binoculars to get a better view of the birds. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Kralendijk holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Flamingo Sanctuary and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • The sanctuary of the Flamingos is a special place and very beautiful. Exciting to see how the locals preserve, respect and love nature and this becomes clear in this sanctuary where one can admire the flamingo that majestic and elegant.

  • We saw lots of flamingo's at bottom end of bonaire not far from salt flats. We got a moped 50cc which we hired for 45 dollars and did it ourselves instead of paying the britannia ship prices
  • Enough to see flamingos here. Fun to drive. The area is also beautiful.
