a trip to the zoo

19 February, 2011

A few weeks ago, one of our neighbor’s sons mentioned that there is a zoo in Errachidia.  We later confirmed this via the Google maps.

Needing a destination for our afternoon walk, The Husband and I decided to go check out Errachidia’s zoo.  I was definitely not expecting Brookfield Zoo, but for whatever reason, I thought it would be more zoo and less park.  Regardless, it gave us something to do for the afternoon.

The zoo featured a bunch of walking trails, some playground equipment for children, benches to repose on, an amphitheater, what looked like a basketball court minus posts with backboards/nets, and a handful of animals.  Species present included: pigeon, turkey, chicken, peacock, swan, monkey and horse.  Surprisingly, we saw no cats in or around the zoo.

There was also what looked like a coal mine with a cart on tracks going into it.

Admission for the two of us (total) was three dirham, or about $0.375 US, and going walking to the zoo, around the zoo and back from the zoo took us about two hours.
