Chandaka elephant sanctuary offered us a great experience. After exploring the sanctuary we went back to our room and took rest. Next day we planned to visit the Nandakanan Zoological park which has a great environmental significance in preserving the both nature and animals.
We reached the zoological park around 10 am. The zoological park is situated amidst of nature. Though it is situated near to Chandaka-Dampara Wildlife Sanctuary we went back to our hotel since it was evening and we were very tired. The park located very proximity of railway station and it is a part of Krishnanagar forest area.
The name itself showcases the beauty of the natural garden.The place is covered with beautiful flora and fauna. It is indeed an excellent place to visit. Me and my kids enjoyed the panoramic and picturesque beauty of nature there.
The zoological park has 101 enclosures and also with 202 sub-enclosures. Each enclosure houses an animal. The Nandankanan zoological park has a total of 126 species of animals. Apart from this, it has open enclosures and cages which hosts several wild animals, reptiles and snakes. I found around 50 open moated enclosures.
We walked around the zoo and saw Patas monkey, Eastern Rosella and Open-billed Storks. Apart from it holds other special nocturnal animals Orang-Utan. The zoo also hold special animals such as Indian Pangolin, Spotted Munia, and Burmese Python Green-winged Macaws, Cinereous Vulture and Nicobar Pigeon.
The zoological park is known for white tiger in the world and it is a breeding place for several animals. The older people were enjoying the beauty of the surroundings by sitting or walking amidst of the lush green grass. I could easily sense the excitement of children and younger people while watching the crocodiles, snakes and other dangerous animals in the park.
We came back in the evening after a good and refreshing walk around the park and we had a wonderful day at the Nandakanan Zoological park.
