Important Information Overview Explore mangrove forests in a kayak and experience one of Qatar's natural wonders. The Al Thakira Mangrove Forest are among Qatar's oldest and largest forests and a welcome surprise in a country known for its desert landscape. The ecosystem attracts migratory birds such as herons and flamingos during certain parts of the year and numerous types of fish and crustaceans are visible 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. It's an easy paddle and accessible even to the inexperienced kayaker. You can also have a guided walkthrough of the ecology of the mangrove forest should you be interested. We end the tour with a refreshing drink on Al Thakira beach where you have an opportunity to take in the view and relax before we depart back to Doha.
