Nehru Zoological Park Hyderabad - The Best Place to Witness Uncommon Mighty Animals

After spending a great time watching and observing the great history of India by the help of the museum and the various monuments, I finally decided to get back and take a break and visit Nehru Zoological Park Hyderabad. Usually people seeking breaks go on for massages in spa or do some recreational activity but my break means doing what I am passionate about that is spending time around wild animals and observing them. This time it was not in any National Park or Reserves but a semi-reserve type.

The zoo timings are basically from 8 in the morning to 5 in the evening and thankfully it wasn’t a Monday as on that particular day the park is closed. It’s been 51 years since the establishment of this zoo and I came to know that it was the first zoo in India to have animals kept by the zoological order that to in open enclosures. I have spent half of my life traveling that to in reserves and so I know the importance of animals being kept in open enclosures and I will also share with you people.

When animals are kept in open enclosures, then they feel like their home and it helps a lot in their breeding and maintenance of their place and most importantly the animals can be easily observed by the officials and workers making their study easier and preventing problems. I was able to witness the two most dominant animals that is the Asiatic lions and the Royal Bengal Tiger roaming around with pride and getting their pictures clicked by me and other visitors as if they were enjoying the celebrity like feeling. I also saw Indian Rhino, Gaur and panthers which are very rare to see now-days. An uncommon animal to witness in India is Giraffe and I was lucky enough to see it and that was a treat to watch. Otherwise many other animals like the Chimpanzees, deer and bear were also spotted and I clicked many snaps of them.

Nehru Zoological Park Hyderabad is surely doing good by breeding the animals well and maintaining proper measures for the safe living of the animals and I had a great time there.
