Kayak through natural mangroves at Al Zorah, Ajman

Al Zorah, the 5.4 million-sq-m luxury and lifestyle destination on the natural peninsula of Ajman, is ramping up the tourism appeal of the destination with the launch of Kayak Tours through its natural mangroves and lagoons soon.

Offering visitors the opportunity to explore one of the region’s most prized natural mangroves, which has been officially declared as a Wetland of International Importance by the Ramsar Convention, the Kayak Tours will be conducted by ‘Quest for Adventure,’ an adventure sports company.

Open to the public including students through a guided schools programme, the Kayak Tours are scheduled to commence in September and is expected to catalyse the tourism scene and further establish Al Zorah as a must-visit tourist and lifestyle destination.

Spanning an area of over 1 million-sq-m, the thick, natural mangroves of Al Zorah is home to over 102 species of native and migratory birds including the famed pink flamingoes that can be spotted throughout the year and more so during the nesting season. The area is abundant with a variety of corals, fish, molluscs and indigenous flora, making it a highly sought-after destination for tourists as well as scientists and researchers to conduct field studies.

Imad Dana, chief executive officer of Al Zorah Development Company, said: “Al Zorah is a luxury destination in the Middle East built around an undisturbed ecosystem underlined by rich biodiversity. With the Ramsar Convention placing Al Zorah on the global map to highlight its immense environmental value, we are offering visitors, including students, the opportunity to explore the natural mangroves and creek through the Kayak Tours. The tours will open doors to memorable experiences with the promise of sighting a range of native and migratory birds. The serene ambience of the mangroves will be truly uplifting for every visitor.”

Furthermore, Marina 1 at Al Zorah, which is constructed along the creek, offers sweeping views of the mangroves, and will host several additional activities by the year-end. Activities that are being planned include seaplane tours, abra rides, watersports, land-based adventure sports, an outdoor fitness club and an array of waterfront cafes and restaurants.

Al Zorah will announce the official launch of the Kayak Tours and subsequent Marina 1 activities soon. - TradeArabia News Service
