“Arabian wild life centre, Sharjah”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2013

Its about 30km from Sharjah city centre and can be visited during any weather. There are 3 areas. 1 Farm-excellent for children and quite clean. 2 Wild life centre- You will be inside but the animals will be outside and is separated by a glass. You need not go to a zoo to see animals.
3. Botanical-interesting, for science lovers.

“Too sad”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2013

It started out really good with the snake and spider exhibition but when we came to the bigger animals it broke my heart to see the small cages. The leopard was looking extremely bored doing number eights in front of the glass.

“Arabian Wildlife Center - Sharjah Desert Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2013

I am a zoo professional. I have been working in zoos for more than 40 years. I work, I visit, I voice my opinions. I have visited hundreds of zoos in many different countries. The Arabian Wildlife Center - Sharjah Desert Park I have seen from both sides of the fence. The GOOD modern zoo is about Conservation, Education, Research, Environmental Enrichment, Caring and more. Some places dress up these claims and are non truths.
This collection is doing all the right things. In my opinion it is one of the best zoos in the world.

“In this zoo YOU are in the cage!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013 via mobile

Good concept of having the animals roam around free while u walk in an air conditioned passage way trying to get a glimpse of leopards, lions, gazelles.
It's definitely fun for the kids and beats being outside in the boiling sun.
What I liked:- the whole concept of the sanctuary and the petting zoo.
What I didnt like:- almost no options to eat at, except a crappy cafe inside.
