Abu Dhabi hosts approximately 110 km2 of both natural and planted mangroves which provide a rich natural habitat and safe breeding ground for several fish species, sea snakes, turtles and commercially important shrimp, snapper, grunt fish and sea bream. Sea birds also find safe nesting and egg laying areas in the vast mangrove forests. Mangrove forests prevent the coastline erosion caused by waves and ocean currents and play an important role in reducing carbon emissions, thereby contributing to lessening the impacts of climate change.
You can hang out to the Mangaroves lagoon national park in Abu Dhabi for an incredible kayak adventure along the waterways that stretch out approximately 5-miles long.
Mangroves grow in a modest temperature of not above than 35°C and low salinity water, making their survival a big challenge in Abu Dhabi, where temperatures rise during summer months. In the past in the UAE, mangrove wood was a major source of food and fuel, and was also used for building houses and ships because of it’s durability and high resistance to rot and termites.
Kayakers can also spend the morning gliding through calm straits trying to spot flamingoes, turtles and rare birds habitation along the shoreline in Short it’s nice place for photographers to capture their moments So don’t forget your DSLR Camera
Make sure that local guide is on hand to provide relevant information about the park itself and the animals that live within its scale.
With annual seasons ranging from hot to very hot, most of Dubai’s residents have used to adapt where necessary. The same for Mushrif Equestrian Centre , and instead of closing for summer, it provides evening classes as well as desert rides through Mushrif Park that are ideal for beginners. Great horses and a huge desert park to ride in. what more could you want? All levels and ages of rider are catered for, with three arenas for lessons, jumping and dressage, while the varied and scenic terrain of 1300 acres of natural parkland offers fantastic rides out.
Mushrif Park is a vast, dune-filled place, with an interesting, hilly landscape that makes a change from Dubai’s typically flat topography. Driving through on my way to the equestrian centre as the sun sets, the park is, unsurprisingly, empty (it is July, after all), but the scattering of slightly older and quirkier children’s playgrounds and houses (giant toadstool, anyone?) offer a charm that Dubai’s newer green spaces lack. And though some areas of the park have a slightly abandoned feel, if anything it only offers a further incentive for horseback exploration.
