Arabia’s Wildlife Centre provides opportunities to discover the remarkable diversity of indigenous fauna found on the Arabian Peninsula. Accommodating arguably the largest collection of Arabian wildlife in the world the Centre is also home to representatives of many species which are extinct in Arabia. They showcase the urgent need to conserve the environment to ensure the sustained survival of this significant part of Arabian heritage.
Reptile & Insect House: A large number of local snakes including Saw-scaled Vipers, Puff Adders and Arabian Cobra can be seen in display living in their natural surroundings. Along with the snakes many lizards, freshwater fishes, amphibians and insects are also on display. Aviary:
Visitors enjoy the entire experience right from the comfort of the climate controlled environment inside the Wildlife Centre; offering the most ideal destination for a family outing, even in summer. During the journey through the Wildlife Centre information panels and recordings along the way offer information about each of the species on display, ensuring that visitors have a greater understanding, and hopefully a new found appreciation, of the terrestrial biodiversity in Arabia.
