A visit to the zoo

The kids have been talking about going to the zoo for a couple of weeks now and we just haven't managed to get the mood or th logistics togather. Last Saturday morning, when my sis's son started singing about the zoo, my sis asked around who were all up for a visit to the zoo and all hands went up. We spent the afternoon at the Rajiv Gandhi zoological park  and what we hadn't expected was the amount of walking. If I do it again, I will do it as an evening activity. Maybe reach there around 3-4pm and spend the evening strolling around.

I do not remember enjoying a zoo as a child. Infact I dont even remember a couple of our zoo visits entirely right now except it being mentioned by mom in terms of timelines like when your cousin was born and granny had come or when we went to Baroda for so-and-so uncle's son's wedding and such like. But I love seeing my kids doing the rounds. Its sometimes like seeing it through their eyes and it seems to be filled with wonder and awe, specially the chattambi.
So here is a peak of a saturday well spent.

Chattambi, Peapod and my sister's son.

Very useful post. Its really helpful for people. Keep sharing post like this. Spread over 130 acres, the Rajiv Gandhi Zoo is divided into 3 parts, viz. a zoo, a snake park and an animal shelter. The zoo initially started as a snake park and later expanded to include other animals. Check out more about Rajiv Gandhi Zoological Park Pune.
