it was nice place to visit with family especailly with young kids. the best part is that you stay in cool comfortable area and you can view the animals in natural environment. The cheetahs and monkey come so close to you and we feel the excitement.

Arabian wildlife center is indoor zoo with variety of species of wild animals. Its display of wild animals in almost same habitat they live in wild is excellent. It is very good experience to see desert wildlife in such cool indoor place. As it close to Sharjah, it is very good place to visit with young children.

This is one the best places to see in Sharjah, unfortunately many do not know of its existence. Located further down the Dhaid road, after the National park, it's a bit outside the city, but the small drive is completely worth it. This place has a true collection of Arabian desert animals & you can see them roaming around free, while you are on this side of the glass, an air conditioned area. Photography is not allowed here, but its amazing to see the animals like leopard, cheetah, oryx etc. There is a section of night animals including wild cats, fox, rodents, snakes etc. which is pretty interesting. At the far end, there is a small restaurent. There is another open small section on domestic animals having camels, goats, ducks, donkeys etc. (children enjoy feeding them & photography is allowed here) and then there is a museum and open area which is pretty green & well maintained. Parking space is pretty good. Open areas could be hot & humid during peak summer.
You can actually cover this place (if you have kids) along with Discovery Centre, old Cars museum & probably the National park to finish with, all on the same road, the last three being close to each other.

This is a lovely trip for family and animal lovers, it is well planned so that you have a cool pleasant walk indoors viewing the animals from large wall to wall windows, as well as many in specially made aquariums, etc. You might spend an average of 1 hour there if you want to rush, but could have a pleasant 2 hour period to enjoy the fauna. It is not near any restaurants, though they have a cafeteria with some snacks. The location is easy to find, on the highway from Sharjah to Dhaid. Parking is always free, and 1 ticket gets you entry to 3 attractions in that area. The last time we were there, each ticket was for Dhs 30.
