It is about 30 km away from the Jharkhand State capital Ranchi. The journey from Don Bosco School, Ranchi to the park was very exciting and entertaining. As the school bus picked up speed towards the exciting destination the students looked through the window and enjoyed the beautiful scenery along the highway.

The hour became interesting, the day became exciting, and the moments gathered momentum of enjoyment as all queued up in front of the park gate. The Teacher Coordinator provided a field worksheet for each student to explore and write. As the students entered the park at first the students had a glimpse of lofty trees and a magnificent forest. Students witnessed the diversity of birds, tigers, and lions in small enclosures, deer in the open fields, huge elephants in the barricades, snakes in the artificially made holes, and many other animals.
