Journey through Africa

The Downing Gorilla Forest is an adventure that delights all the senses, as you become immersed in equatorial Africa. Along the bank of the river, you will see a family of black-and-white colobus and DeBrazza’s monkeys. A fifty-foot suspension bridge will take you out of the lively atmosphere of Nganda Village and immerse you in the forest of the gorilla.

Pride of the Plains features 700 feet of paths and trails winding through kopje (large boulder) rock with unobstructed views of animals from the African savannah.
