It is true, some animals are rescued from being pets ! Although we have been here many, many times.... the kids never tire of it and it is much closer than Al ain. Everything is indoors but there is some minimal walking from car park to natural history, which is a must see if in the area, it's just across... More

I visited Arabian wild life centre in Sharjah with friends.. It was part of a tour arranged to understand and experience Arab history and culture. I was quite amazed to learn how much effort has gone into making this place and its upkeep. This place is not enough advertised. A good place for taking children to make them learn about... More

I visited this place more than 5 times at least and in each visit I enjoy further. The center is well organized and has indoor and outdoor walking area where you can enjoy seeing different types of local animals. There are also a small restaurant surrounded by amazing view

Emirate People are strange, it's not uncommun to have a wild animal as a pet. This animal center is a must do for all animallovers. I don't like that wild animals are taken from their habitat but sometimes it's also the only way to keep some species alife....

This is a good enough place to see wildlife including arabian wildlife, specially in this "hot desert" environment. There are several wildlife species in this place. Excellent place to take your children and m,ake them aware of wildlife in UAE.

This is NOT your typical zoo. It's a great place to learn all about life in the desert, the wild life and birds etc. It showcases local wildlife, from cute little gerbils to mean looking billy goats. This is a place meant for families, little kids will enjoy this place and learn about animals n geography in a fun setting.... More
