  • You need a little luck with the number of flamingos that there is. When we were there that were there very much. It is nature and that you can't force. Definitely worth it to go check it out. Free access.

  • About this place, like many other attractions in Turistino we read of the Emirates. Sounded pretty intriguing. But the reality, even exceeding expectations. Especially surprising that this reserve is located right in the middle of one of the busiest in the world.

  • A rare moment of nature amidst the skyscrapers of Dubai. Gate 1 offers the mesmerizing greater flamingo nesting site and Gate 2 offers a plethora of other unique birds in a natural habitat. One can easily spend 30-40 mins at each site. The facility can be visited only by private car or a taxi, and has well kept basic amenities, and it's a free visit
  • If you’re a bird watcher you better visit this place. The only downside to it is lack of transportation and people don’t really guide you well. I had quite a bit of trouble getting here however all the effort and trouble was worth it. Check out the image I shared, where else would you see a Heron cat walking on water showing you it’s classic couture feathers.
  • Limited parking area. Entrance Fee. Amazing place for bird lovers. Hundreds of flamingo’s birds, Nice place to enjoy afternoon time.
  • Good to see. It only needs 10 minutes to view the place and take some nice shots.
  • Natural beauty but not able to enjoy much as all enclosed and have to watch from a distance
