Irkaya Reserve

Irkaya Farm is situated in the south-central plain of Qatar, near Abu Samra Road. Irkaya sits in the middle of the desert like a bright emerald. Many permanent species live there, and it is in the flight path of migratory birds and insects passing through Qatar. The absence of grazing animals benefits all native plant species at Irkaya.
