Azraq Reserve

Azraq is a unique wetland oasis located in the heart of the semi-arid Jordanian eastern desert. It contains several natural and ancient built pools, a seasonally flooded marshland and a large mudflat known as Qa’at Azraq. Scores of birds flock to Azraq Reserve each year, on their winter migration route from Europe to Africa, they include larks, finches, warblers, eagles, raptors, harriers, plovers and ducks. The wetland reserve is also home to the wild water buffalo that live in the marshland. Lizards, foxes and jackals are sporadically seen in the late evening. Best time to see bird life is in winter (December to February) and early spring (March and April).
