Sharjah Tourism Travel Quiz

Discover the diversity of Sharjah wildlife

Located in Sharjah Desert Park, Arabia’s Wildlife Centre hosts several animals, including the Arabian Oryx, the UAE’s national animal, and the Arabian leopard, the region’s famous big cat. These endangered animals have their own large landscaped enclosures and come from the nearby Sharjah wildlife centre where they are bred. Since they are rare animals to see, it is one of the busy tourist places in Sharjah. Sharjah Desert Park is also one of the only parks in Sharjah to have a conservation centre and an Islamic Botanical Garden.

The nearby wildlife sanctuary and nature reserve also offers things to do with kids. The children’s area features a petting zoo, making it one of the preferred places to visit in Sharjah for families. If you’re looking to visit as a family in the middle of the year, call ahead to time your visit with the summer activities for kids.
