Nabaq Reserve

For everyone with a spirit for adventure, and discovering everything that is rare and unfamiliar, today we'll talk about an area you should put on the list of places you're going to visit!

It is a reserve of Nabaq, a spot on the Gulf of Aqaba in an area between Sharm el-Sheikh, Dahab and Wadi um Adawi. It covers an area of 600 square kilometers, and strangely, part of it is located on land, and the other is in water. The first has an area of 440 km, while the second has an area of 130 km. It is reported that the announcement of It as a nature reserve was in 1992. In the next few lines, we will show you, our dear reader, what distinguishes the Nabq Reserve, and make it a reserve worth visiting.

One of the things that distinguishes the reserve is that it has great views of a mountain desert environment with sand dunes at a valley called Ked. However, it is a home to a large number of rare animals and birds, such as blue-eyed deer, lint, tails, foxes, birds such as balchons and punitive eagle. More unique and distinctive, it contains some 134 species of plants, more than 86 of which have disappeared completely around the world.

Furthermore, this reserve contains two types of trees, one called mangroves or shuras, and the other called "arak". For mangroves, these trees live on saltwater or low-salinity, specifically at the torrents at sea, where they are able to extract fresh water and get rid of salt with their leaves. They are also of great importance in maintaining the presence of large numbers of fish and invertebrates. And for the arak the trees are characterized by an island system that stabilizes the sand dunes on the ground. The Bedouins in this area use the branches of the arak to clean their teeth instead of toothbrushes.

You'll definitely find entertainment and fun with safaris, and diving at the bottom of the sea and watching rare fish and magnificent coral reefs.
