Zoo parks are always mentioned in the list of must visit places by the travellers, irrespective of the city you are in. They are thrilling and educative for both children and adults. I have visited many parks and zoos of India, so I was excited to see what Rajiv Gandhi Zoological Park of Pune has to offer for it tourists.
The resort we stayed in had many luxury cars for the guests to roam around the city. We took one for ourselves. We were all set with caps, shoes, camera, and some snacks from the resort’s restaurant as we had to spend our entire day in the zoo.
Within one and half hour, we joyfully arrived at the park. We took the information from the resort manager about the zoo that it is open all days but not on Wednesday, and the timings are 9.30 to 5. The entry fee was 15 per head; we took the tickets and entered the zoo.
We read from the huge boards of the zoo that the entire place of 130 acre is parted into three categories, they are Snake Park, zoo and animal orphanage. We all were eager to explore each phase of the zoo. Well, the zoo had made many efforts to collect some enormous and rare species of animals. Though I am scared of reptiles, but I was startled with such a variety of snakes here.
Leopard, barking deer, monkeys, snakes, cobras, vipers, crocodiles, python, elephants, bears, tigers, and so many animals. I filled my camera with amazing animal shots, that I will definitely share with you my friends.
We were having fun wandering around and munching our snacks. It was 4 pm by now, and our legs were aching in pain. We then moved out of the zoo as we finished seeing almost every corner of the zoo. Our driver from the hotel was waiting for us, and now we only wanted to reach our resort and give rest to our bodies.
It was the most exciting and at the same time exhaustive day for all of us. After reaching the resort, we took spa therapies so that we get set for the next day of our trip.
