Trip to Hanwell Zoo

It’s crazy that I want to travel the world when I haven’t explored my own backyard yet. Hoping to change this by taking baby steps. I first heard about ‘Hanwell Zoo’ on twitter and decided to check their website for more information.

I was shocked to learn that Hanwell Zoo is home to one of my favourite bird species. The curvy necks, long legs and a splash of pink  makes this bird one of the most exquisitely beautiful species on this planet. Can you guess?

You guessed it right, it’s the Pink Flamingos ♥ By the way, what’s your favourite bird?

When Caribbean meets West London

I cannot afford to jet off to the Caribbean but looks like Hanwell Zoo has sorted that for a tiny price of £2.50. Okay, the experience may not be the same but my dream of seeing pink flamingos came true and that’s huge for me.

Did you know that these flamingos are not naturally pink but they get the colour from the food (microorganisms) they eat.

These lemurs are either sunbathing or praying, not sure.

Can someone tell me whether these lemurs are actually worshiping the sun or sunbathing? All of us watching couldn’t figure out what they were up to.

The highlight of this trip was definitely the Lemurs. They are so entertaining and I spent more time watching them pray, sunbathe, jump (whatever they were doing lol).

First time I've seen a white peacock

I left the zoo seeing more species than I intended to. From peacocks to red crowned cranes, meerkats to porcupines, I definitely had a blast. I wish my school had more field trips. It would have been easier for me to digest what’s  written in the textbooks.

Hanwell zoo is an awesome place for the young and the old. Definitely a treat for the kids and a must see when you’re in West-London.

Do you think schools should organise more outdoor activities for kids?
