  • On average, I've visited Zakher Lake at least once a month over the last five years. It's an artificial lake, with a ribbon of reedbeds on three sides, surrounded by sand system desert.This picturesque site attracts large numbers of birds, such as herons, egrets, ducks, grebes, waders, small passerines and raptors. Many breeding species are present but the site is also hugely attractive to migrants.Easily accessible from the Truck Road it is open to the public at all times. Great for picnicking too. Incidentally, swimming is not allowed.Can be crowded at weekends but often deserted at other times.
  • A perfect outdoor experience with family and friends. Wonderful ambience with a very serene and neat lake located in midst of the dunes.
