Sharjah is unlike any other Emirate in the UAE. It holds within its boundaries, an undiscovered slice of paradise. Kalba, being an almost unknown destination, is an exclave of the city situated on the Gulf of Oman coast on the Omani border. The most southerly town in the country, Khor Kalba was once only known for its lively fish market; its many natural wonders reserved for those that resided there.
Nature thrives in Khor Kalba; a desert wetland where bountiful mangroves make way for tidal creeks and pristine beaches. An important breeding ground for rare bird species, Kalba offers birdwatchers a spectacular experience where sightings of the White-Collard Kingfisher and the Sykes’ Warbler are a common occurrence.
Separated from the mainland by a river and overlooking the Indian Ocean, Kalba is a sensitive habitat where special wildlife and the natural landscape are preserved for generations to come. Kingfisher Lodge by Mantis is paving the way for eco-tourism in the region.
