Arabian Wildlife Centre: Situated just off Al Dhaid Road, the Arabian Wildlife Centre is a fabbie indoor facility bang in the middle of the animal enclosures. Observation windows mean the big cats, oryx, gazelle, ostrich and more can literally be just inches away from you, seemingly oblivious to your presence. Once you’ve looked at all the rare animals, why not pop along to the Petting Farm next door? With camels, ponies, cows, sheepand donkeys you can pet and feed, it’s a fantastic family afternoon out. Dhs15 per person, and kids under 12 get in free. Open Sun-Thu 9am-5.30pm (closed Tue), Fri 2pm-5.30pm, Sat 11am-5.30pm. Ongoing. (06 531 1999; www.breedingcentresharjah.com).
