Swinging with the primates
The Gorilla Pavilion is home to dozens of Central African species, along with leaping tamarins, pygmy monkeys, marsupials, wasps and marmosets, as well as five endangered gorillas. Visitors can experience the Cameroonian landscape and wildlife up close, just as if they were on a journey through the Central African rainforest. Opened in September 2022, the world's most modern gorilla pavilion is among the newest on the grounds; it is also one of Prague Zoo's largest buildings. For several years, the zoo has been committed to animal welfare in the Dja Wildlife Reserve in Cameroon, after which the gorilla pavilion was also named. Undisputedly, the highlight of this pavilion are the parrots, which can be admired open-air - since their flight feathers have been clipped, they cannot fly away.
