Allen Forest Zoo, Uttar Pradesh – A Natural Dwelling Place

Nature and wildlife have fascinated me since childhood. My life is always revolving around my camera and the lenses always search for newer and better panoramas of the nature. Wildlife is something which one can never get bored of. My interest in wildlife is as old as my photography. Having clicked a large number of pictures in my locality, I was now inclined towards capturing the natural inhabitants of the jungle. This very plan kept banging within my head every time, and my trip to Uttar Pradesh added wings to turn my dream into a virtual reality. It was the fourth day of our stay in Uttar Pradesh. We got up in the morning, had our breakfast and hired a cab from the hotel and headed towards the Allen Forest zoo. Zoos are not only just a display area or exhibition of the animals, but here the animals are also trained and preserved for the better. This particular zoo is something more or less like a sanctuary where different varieties of endangered as well as existing animals and birds are grown up in a favorable surrounding.

The large variety of animals and bird add to the charm of the zoo. White Asiatic tiger, Royal Bengal tiger, cheetah, leopard, Asiatic lion, Grizzly monkey, languor, deer, musk deer, sloth bear, baboon etc are few of the animals one can find here. Among the birds, hyena, parakeet, emu, parrot, saras-crane, ostrich and several others are also found here.

The picturesque surrounding and panorama of the nature will keep the visitors abound as it did with us. This top ranked zoo cum botanical garden also has few museums and aquariums within it. People can make separate tickets to pay a visit into these.
