Gorilla Mountain

You are here

Gorilla Mountain is one of our older enclosures, but also one of the most attractive. With grass, trees, waterfalls and rocks, it offers very natural surroundings for our family of Western Lowland gorillas, Bukavu, Miliki, Njema, Meisie, Moanda and Makari. 

The island is accessed from their outside paddock and they spend much of their time there, foraging for scattered food and enjoying the sunshine during the summer months. The youngsters treat the island as their very own adventure playground!

The adjacent outdoor enclosure is used daily by the apes during the keepers’ cleaning time and offers a spacious chilling out zone all year round. The gorillas can be seen easily through large viewing windows when they’re inside the house. They do like to nap ….. often!
