Wasit Wetland Centre reviews
Beautiful place hidden away. Went to see with grandson who loved to see the birds. Its small but well laid out. There were cute little birdys coming up to meet u. The outside tour is stopped bcoz of..... more »
It’s very good place but mostly area was closed. So now we can see only birds and related informations more »
It's a place for a short trip not very far from city limits in Sharjah . Educational trip from schools can be highly recommended. If you are a bird watcher you will be more interested.you can see varieties of birds in both outdoor and indoor areas. A trip in a golf cart will take you around the whole outdoor area with two three bird watching points. Just a one hour trip if you are not a keen bird watcher.
Great place to spend a few hours with your kids. It’s easily accessible with plenty of free parking. Entrance charges of 15 aed per adult. There is an large lake around which an electric vehicle takes you for a tour of the wetlands with various birds in their natural environment. There is an indoor area from which you can view them.The birds are well kept and cared for. Small cafeteria for snacks.
