All animals, etc. are perfectly cared for within their natural hábitat/environment. Sincé so few visitors appear to... More

Sharjah Wildlife Centre is one of these places that you have to research to find. Not too many people go there, and it is not the sort of place that you can find easily, but when you do, it is worth the research. I love taking my kids there, lots of animals, Birds, Wildlife, you name it. Even a place... More

If you are interested in Arabian wildlife - this is where you can find them under one roof in the comfort of an air-conditioned facility. Good documentation & I enjoyed the aviary part of this center.

A very organised setup with a lot of variety. We really enjoyed a lot as we were able to see animals and birds in their natural environment. Best part was the airconditioning. Its good to visit even in the hot months

A great day out with young kids, lots of animals to see, a petting zoo, a botanical garden and a natural history museum all for 15 AED per adult! Kids under 12 are free. So great value for money as well. I would suggest brining a picnic as there is limited food on offer.

Animals are scarce. the beetles and reptiles section have a very good collection and most loved place is an open area of birds where they fly around us. The collection of birds were less from my last visit in 2015. But Kids loved the birds flying around.
