For some reason, I tend to seek out zoos and botanical gardens in cities that I visit. Just seems to provide a respite from whatever hectic activities I might be involved in during my stay. Colombo’s Zoological Gardens is very well stocked with a wide range of animals from lemurs and wild pheasants to elephants, lions, tigers and giraffes. The zoo is quite large and if you go, plan on spending 2 to 3 hours if you want to see most of the exhibits. The cages, tanks and grounds are very clean and well maintained. In fact while viewing the fish tanks, that were remarkably clean, it reminded me of how many aquarium disaster’s I suffered as a child. The park is cool and easy to navigate since all the exhibits are consecutively numbered. The only down side, is the price of entrance tickets – about $20 for foreigners – but then I found that the cost of living in Sri Lanka is quite high in general and I enjoyed my visit immensely.
