A friend from Australia Lynette Petty was in the town recently. She was on the tour of India, she went to many places, done many adventures and guess what SHE DON’T USE MOBILE PHONE and she had done all that without a mobile!!!! 

No matter how good a person she is and at this age also she was carrying heavier camera bag then mine and roaming around the country, but not using a mobile is something serious. On our chit - chat she told me about how the other hotel guest spend their time with their phone instead of exploring the city or swimming or doing any other activity like what she was doing. I think that she has a strange disorder might be its contagious and could be lethal also. Before she spreads this to anyone else we all should request “Apple” or “Google” to gift her one Mobile Phone and ask Australian Government to make sure that she also gets addicted to Mobile.

Nahargarh Biological Park started  in June 2016 basically the animals from Ram Niwas Bagh Zoo or Jaipur Zoo had got shifted to Nahargarh Biological Park with some other animals under an exchange program. This thing gave better living caged conditions to the captive animals which are there for the stupid entertainment of cruel insensitive humans.

The Nahargarh Zoological Park houses animals such as Asiatic Lions, Bengal Tigers, White Tigers, Panthers, Hyenas, Wolves, Deer, Crocodiles, Sloth Bear, Himalayan Black Bear, Wild Boar, etc. 

The Lion Safari at Nahargarh Biological Park started from April 2018. Lions in this park were brought from Junagarh, Gujarat under an exchange program. Right now there are 3 Lions at the Lion Safari area and 7 more are expected in few months.

The Best Time to Visit Nahargarh Biological Park is the early morning. At the morning time you can sight the animals roaming around. Otherwise in the day time as the Sun gets on top most of the animals go in the shade and relax. for the Nahargarh Zoological Park best way is to park your vehicle at the parking area near the Ticket Window and take an Electric Rickshaw which will take to the main entrance gate of the Nahargarh Zoological Park.

The best time to visit Lion Safari is also in the morning, in the morning you have the best chance to sight the 3 Lions in open and together. But a Lion Safari Canter needs minimum of 12 booked seats before it starts so either go in a group or you have to wait for Canter to fill in.
