Arabian Wildlife Center, Sharjah

4.5
#2 of 6 in Parks in Sharjah
Learn about the different animals and ecosystems of the Arabian Peninsula at Arabian Wildlife Center. Housing the world's largest collection of Arabian animals--such as oryx antelopes, Arabian leopards, and flamingos--the zoo creates open and convincing examples of the animals' natural habitats. Additionally, you get the pleasure of staying in the fully air-conditioned main building, viewing the animals through large panel windows, as well as enjoying indoor exhibits and enclosures. For a particularly memorable sight, head to the snake section: the colors and abundance of nature's slitheriest specimens creates quite a spectacle.

  • very nice place, free for kids! only adults have to pay a very reasonable fee! lots of animals and things to see! you will not find any place cheaper!
  • one of the best place for family to make their children know about Animals, Arabian culture, Farming, Earth. well maintained place in the middle of desert , very minimal entry ticket,
  • Perfect for all ages, fun for children and family, nice and relaxing experience, food as also not expensive there, entry fees is 15 dhs... so everybody can enjoy, a great place, its like oasis in desert.
  • Never open. I've wasted hours driving to this centre on two occasions now, as the website said it's open yet once you get there it's closed. Seriously annoying. Please can you update your website so your opening hours and days are correct.
  • We brought our kids (3 year old and 18 months old), and they enjoyed it tremendously. It was very inexpensive, especially considering how much there is to see.
