  Arabian Leopard
by Faiza-Ifrah

Sharjah rightfully claims to be the Cultural capital of the UAE. One must visit the Sharjah Desert Park, which consists of Museum of Natural History, Arabia's Wildlife Centre and Children's Farm.

This pix of Arabian Leopard is borrowed, because photography is not allowed anywhere. The Sharjah Desert Park is one of its kind that we have seen anywhere. One can watch all the wildlife occuring in the Arabian peninsula through air-conditioned hall. In one big hall, artificial environment of a desert has been created and the desert wildlife roams and flies freely over and around the visitors.

Directions: Located in one big compound near the 10th interchange on Sharjah to Fujeirah Highway.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
