Arabia’s Wildlife Centre-YesGulf

  1. Arabia’s Wildlife Center:

Visiting zoo is always the most amusing thing for kids. But, during summer you may not prefer taking them out to see and meet animals. Arabia’s Wildlife Centre located in Sharjah’s Desert Park, UAE is the best choice to get your kids closer to the nature this summer.

I don’t think if there is any other such a marvelous wildlife sanctuary in Gulf that is completely indoors. This makes it a perfect destination for a day out in all seasons.

From mild to wild animals including ungulates, nocturnal animals, birds, large carnivores and more, this place is the great representation of the wildlife of the Arabian Peninsula. This center is divided into different sections incorporating children farm.
