A visit to a zoo is an interesting experience. Last Sunday I went to Ahmedabad zoo with my parents. We went there by bus. Ahmedabad Zoo is near Kankaria Lake. My father bought the tickets and we entered the gate. There were ponds on both the side of the road. Ducks and Swans were swimming in the Ponds. We saw Kangaroos, elephants, stags, deer and neelgai etc. We saw different kind of monkeys, apes and chimpanzee in a separate cage. Then we came to the cages of birds. There were different kinds of birds like peacock, parrot, dove, pigeon, cuckoo etc. I saw white peacock which is very unique and beautiful. Then we moved towards large enclosures of tigers and lions. We saw rhinoceros and hippopotamus next. Then there were separate enclosures for zebra and giraffe. After going round the zoo, we came out and sat under a tree. We had food with us so we enjoyed it. Visiting zoo is an amazing experience.
