We visited this place on 19th May in the afternoon, though it was hot outside, viewing was from within cool interiors. I was impressed by the varied collection of reptiles found in Arabia, snakes in particular. Never seen so much variety of snakes anywhere - get to see baboons, Cheetahs and Leopards too. There is one restaurant which serves desserts... More

You can walk indoor and enjoy wild life. Not much animals but you will definitely enjoy. There is also a cafeteria inside.

Sharjah Wildlife Centre is one of these places that you should visit. Its so huge and the birds everything are kept open. You can have a close look onto that. Rest all animals are kept in big cages and its very nice to have a look.

This visit was one of the major highlights of our recent visit to the UAE. Unfortunately we had allowed insufficient time to see everything in depth, but can definitely recommend this to all age groups. Each exhibit is nothing less than spectacular ... 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
