Bit of Africa in Australia I have been to a few wildlife sanctuaries in Africa and India and savoured the beauty of the beasts in their own natural domain. The thrills and excitement of wildlife sightings came back to me when I recently visited the Taronga Western Plain Zoo in Dubbo, located in the central region of NSW, about 6 hours north-west of Sydney .This 300 hectare oasis of woodland and irrigated grassland is home to hundreds of animals of different species, some of which are endangered. Theyfreely wander in their self-contained hideouts without metal bars, cages and concrete slabs; clever use of lakes, moats and unobtrusive fencing separating them from visitors. This invariably creates a pseudo jungle scenario and an impression of being almost face to face with the animal world as in any wildlife reserve. 08-May-2016
