This month’s names, num­bers, events and ad­dresses of note

Our road trip around the UAE for this month’s fash­ion ed­i­to­rial, Dusk to Dawn (page 36), cul­mi­nated at the King­fisher Lodge. Set in the heart of the Khor Kalba man­grove con­ser­va­tion re­serve in Shar­jah and with stun­ning views of the coun­try’s East Coast, the glamp­ing spot has 20 lux­ury tents, done up in shades of tan and blue to re­flect the sur­round­ing to­pog­ra­phy. Ameni­ties in­clude a splash pool and spa, as well as pro­vi­sions for pad­dle­board­ing, kayak­ing, na­ture walks and moun­tain bike rides. The re­serve is recog­nised as a sus­tain­able wet­land en­vi­ron­ment for many en­dan­gered species, and you can spot the Ara­bian col­lared king­fisher and tur­tles hatch­ing along the banks of the es­tu­ary. The eco-friendly lodge has been de­signed using green con­struc­tion tech­niques, and operates with a view to pre­serve lo­cal flora and fauna.
