Explore mangrove forests in a kayak and experience one of Qatar’s natural wonders. The Al Thakira Mangrove Forest is among Qatar’s oldest and largest forests and a real surprise for most visitors in a country known for its desert landscape. The ecosystem attracts seasonal migratory birds such as herons and flamingos, and numerous types of fish and crustaceans can be found all year round.

After being collected from your hotel we travel north to Al Thakira where you will receive a safety briefing before setting off to explore the mangroves. The pace is relaxed to ensure the tour is accessible even for the inexperienced kayaker and you also learn more about the ecology of the mangrove forest.
