Congo Gorilla Forest

Go nose-to-nose with gorillas in a 6.5-acre swath of the rainforest that will transport you to the heart of Africa. Your Congo wildlife safari will be packed with surprises as you trek beneath the canopy of leaves, through sprays of mist, and up to treetop lookouts.

What to See and Do

See gorillas in your midst.
More than 20 western lowland gorillas romp right before your eyes. See if you can identify who’s who using our gorilla ID plaques.

Monkey see-monkey do.
Call like a colobus, stretch your limbs like a guenon, groom your sister like a marmoset, and shake your body like a mandrill!

View the world from a python’s perspective.
Through an infrared camera, you’ll see yourself just as the snake does—a patchwork of colors, radiating heat!
