Tour toGiza Zoo .Giza Zoo
overlook to Cairo University; it
has five gates on all sides, and was built on 80 acres of land. Inside the Zoo
there is over 130 species of mammals, birds and reptiles. Not to mention that
most of the greenery in the Zoo is rare plants, and the gorgeous grottoes.
Other than playing host to a number of animals, the Zoo also has an animal
museum, an animal experimental center and an animal behavioral study institute.
Not to mention that the Zoo works on saving endangered animals through breeding
then relocating the animals to their original habitat..
Some of the animals
you can find there are baboons, chimpanzees, lions, leopards, jackals,
kangaroos, sea lions, and bears. Also many breeds of birds can be found like
vultures, pelicans, cockatoos, emus, flamingos, and sacred ibises. You can also
find reptiles such as crocodiles, alligators, and cobras
In 2010, the Zoo
had new arrivals, three orangutans (Teetee, Fatouta, Bangu), Bonnet Macaques,
Rhesus Macaque, Pigtail Macaque, and Patas monkey. Also, baby animals were born
this year including a beautiful American black bear named Lola.
Theres also the
touching story of Muzas survival. She is a beautiful chimp, who arrived to the
Zoo in April 2010 exhausted and with several tumors. A team of the Zoo vets
took good care of her, and successfully removed the two tumors from her neck
have a nice day at the Zoo with the animals, you have to come prepared. My
first piece of advice is to keep an open mind and stay positive; just like
anywhere else in Cairo youre bound to get some
"compliments" thrown your way. At least thats how I choose to look at
them, so if someone yells at you saying "beautiful", "sexy"
or anything similar try to pay no attention and just take it as a compliment.
Second piece of advice would be power in number; almost everything is more fun
with other people to enjoy it with you, so make sure when you visit theGiza Zoo theres someone else to walk its
long streets with you. In this case, its not just more fun its helpful.
A happy bladder
makes for a happy day, the honest truth is the facilities there are not that
clean, but dont let that discourage you from enjoying a
day at the Zoo. It
takes approximately two to three hours to get around the Zoo, just make sure
you dont need to use the facilities while you are there.
The best time to
visit would be in the early morning between the months of October and January
(Never go on a national holiday the number of people there can get
overwhelming). Its much less crowded and you can actually enjoy the day without
melting from the heat. There are plenty of benches and seating areas around
