Students were amazed to see the Natural Beauty. A delicious breakfast was followed by a tour of the place where the students were excited and shook their legs to the thumping dance numbers which were played in the river. They even created a few crazy steps and the teachers too joined the fun. Every child was given an opportunity to participate and enjoy themselves.

They saw some familiar and unfamiliar species of animals and birds– the Lion, Tiger, Leopard, Elephant, jaguar, Black Swan, migratory birds, etc. The students were very excited to see animals and birds ‘for real’ as compared with looking at them in their picture books and on television.
