By attracting flamingos, pelicans, terns and many other species it became one of the best spots on planet Earth for bird-watching.

The landscape of the coast is also unique and phenomenal; it’s simply a cocktail of mudflats, swamps, shallow ocean waters, islands, sea grass beds and even sand dunes of the desert. In addition, it’s a shelter for more than 40 fish species, hyenas, whales, dolphins and sea turtles, etc. Gazelles can also be witnessed on land every now then. A fishing boat, with a fisherman, takes tourists around in the park to bird-watch, look for gazelles and dolphins, and see some surrounding islands.
