About 26km east of central Sharjah towards Al-Dhaid, Sharjah Desert Park packs four venues into a one-square-kilometre package. The main attraction is the Arabian Wildlife Centre, a zoo and breeding centre showcasing the diversity of critters that call the region home. The indoor aviary is home to flamingos, Houbara bustards and Indian rollers, while the outdoor enclosures house hamadryas baboons, striped hyenas, Arabian wolves and the splendid Arabian leopard.
The Sharjah Aquarium has ethereal sea horses, charming clownfish, spooky moray eels, prowling reef sharks and 250 or so other underwater species never fail to amuse, enlighten and entertain.
