What a zoorific time at the Emperor Valley Zoo!

By Marika Mohammed. The word on the streets was about the massive changes that have taken place at the Emperor Valley Zoo. I wanted to check it out and see what the buzz was about for myself. I was definitely awestruck on the reconstruction of the entire landscape for the animals. Each enclosure took some geographical landscape to the origin of the animal home. The highlights were definitely the animals. How zoorific!


The zoorific big reveal

The otters were a delight to see as they swam and played to entertain onlookers while the crocodiles could care less for the visitors. I absolutely adore seeing the pony and was tempted to actually pet it as it was so close to me. The big reveal, however, was when the zookeeper fed the giraffes treats to bring them out of their home. From looking at the behaviour of the giraffes, it looked as though they were shy. They were utterly cute.

I enjoyed the turtles and flamingoes and the various types of monkeys, fishes and birds. To top it all, I liked how they combined the various tropical flowers to make the scenery more colourful and fun. It

was definitely amazing and a great workout walking and seeing all the animals. They indicated that they are going to expand with an African safari soon so I hope I will get to see it as soon as it is completed.
