Recently renowated observation points give a chance to observe wild pink flamingos in their natural environment. Just amazing that this place exists just a couple kilometers from the main centre of Dubai! Well done!!!

The best thing about this attraction is that it is free and a great alternative to the concrete jungle of Dubai.

Flamingos in the middle of Dubai! I recommend to go there by car or taxi. It's almost impossible to get there by bus. There is two entrances. If you want to see flamingos choose the one next to E66 road. Free admission.

Hi Meinita, should be open on a Sunday. The one day they are closed is on Fridays. If you can, check the daily feeding (one is at 9am and the other one is around 4pm) Enjoy!
