It is a visual treat to see several species of animals in large allocated spaces. Meeting Ostrich was a pleasant surprise.
We also saw the four legged animals which had committed suicide in front of Salman Khan’s car. The black buck. hehe.
- Wear shoes else cycling or walking would be difficult.
- Carry water with you. Though the zoo has water coolers at short distances, your golf cart may not stop everywhere.
- Please maintain silence lest you should scare the animals.
The Monsson Palace, on the adjacent road is also visible from the zoo. The heat slowed us down and we kept taking short breaks under trees' shade. By the exit time, we literally fled with our cycles without looking at the animals since it was too hot! I don’t remember how many times we had refilled our water bottles. Sweating and tired we returned the cycles post two hours of adventure.
As we exited the Zoo with bagful of memories and camera full of pictures, we contemplated whether or not to visit the Monsoon Palace. To know what happened next, read here.
P.S- This trip of mine to Udaipur was in Oct 2016.
