It has various snakes of the desert followed by insects and reptiles. The arabian onyx was my favourite( i used to love to look at in Oman in my childhood) the Araibian Leppord is extinct now...

I've been to the Arabian Wildlife Center twice now and loved both of my visits. The center is located outside of Sharjah and is very easy to get to. There isn't much traffic in this area. The minimal entrance fee also includes the natural history museum and the garden. There is plenty of parking available. The wildlife center is all... More

Located en route Dibba, Arabian Wildlife Center is quite a drive from city of Sharjah. This attraction is compounded with Children's farm, Museum and Botanical Garden which we were not aware until we drove in. Children's farm is small but offers fair chance to children to get close with pet animals. Good photographic opportunities to click kids feeding hays to... More

Very educating and entertaining. A very good setup - not at all like a zoo but reflects more like a wildlife sanctuary where one does not have to bear the heat of the outdoors. People view animals in their natural habitat from the air conditioned corridors of this excellent facility. Reasonably priced and interesting for both adults and children alike.

The facility is big,the animals well cared for and interestingly they have managed to put animals that normally prey on others with their natural prey.There is just enough information to be good but they don't bury you in it.Well worth a visit with or without kids Kate

This is a nice little zoo away from the hustle bustle of the Sharjah city. This is not the typical cage type zoo. Instead you walk through a Ac room with glass wall through which you can see the animals doing their think in their almost natural environment. I got a chance to see a leopard real close almost touching... More

A beautiful place far from the fast city life. This is a unique zoo where we are inside a A/C and the animals are free in the natural sun light. Very neatly maintained, different kind of zoo. Here kids can feed hay to the domesticated/pet animals too.

This is a really well kept little zoo with a good collection of Arabian wildlife - from snakes and scorpions, through rodents and bats to Arabian wolves and leopards. It is all indoors so it would be just as pleasant to visit in the scorching summer. My favourite part was the indoor walk-in aviary. It is quite small so you... More

We went to this centre as part of a tour we booked as passengers on Queen Mary 2. It's one of the nicest small zoos anywhere in the world. Animals are well kept and healthy - no smells or repetitive behaviour. You start in an exciting section of snakes native to Arabia. Some incredibly poisonous ones here (all behind security... More
