Summarization : Success on every occasion is definitely a lousy teacher. Why you ask? It’s because a person who has been successful on every occasion thinks that he cannot fail and when he fails he thinks it’s the end of the world. But that’s not the truth. Every person fails in his life at some point and when that happens, one must not give up and try again.

Saj Resort Mahabaleshwar: Impressing You with Excellent services!

Spread across a huge area of 5 acres I believe, this resort is a perfect way to spend few days in the cradle of Mother Nature. No doubt, being a photographer I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in this resort, because of its natural surroundings. The shutter of my camera never came to halt, and I was really excited about the whole thing.

The adventure spot was quite close to the Saj resort Mahabaleshwar, and therefore it was quite convenient for me to return even after the sunset.

Best Weekend Getaway At Rajiv Gandhi Zoological Park, Pune

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.
