Visit to Vandalur Zoo, Chennai – 2012
My son has taken interest mostly by watching TV & reading books on Animals, Birds and Wildlife. He has been behind me to take him to Vandaloor Zoo (we had gone a few before but at that time he was small). I managed to take a break from work today & go there.
Based on the experience of our previous trip to Vandaloor Zoo, I went prepared this time:
- Carried a well-stocked picnic bag with plenty of home-cooked food, water & biscuits
- Started from home early, so we reached Vandaloor by 10:30 AM
- Immediately on getting into the Zoo, took on hire two bicycles (The shop was run by BSA but the cycles were in poor condition)
Even though it was a working day I was surprised to find the whole zoo crowded with people. So for each animal in the zoo, there were 100 or so Homo sapiens to watch. I felt the number of animals on display was fewer compared to my last trip.
We went around the entire zoo leisurely and started our way back home around 5 PM. Overall, we both enjoyed the day thoroughly.
