It’s World Gorilla Day and what better way to celebrate than with a trip to the Zoo to see our very own Western Lowland Gorilla troops? Family group Charles, Ngozi, Charlie, Josephine, Johari, Nneka and Charlie, and bachelor group Sadiki and Nassir. Toronto Zoo is an active member of the North American Gorilla Species Survival Plan (SSP) which focuses on maintaining a genetically and demographically healthy captive gorilla population at the same time conservation efforts work to protect them in the wild.



Please note that the African Savanna, from the south Kesho Gate by Kesho Park HQ to hyenas, will be closed on July 11 and 12, 2020 due to a 19+ ticketed event. Giraffes, River hippos, warthogs, Watusi cattle, African penguins and White lions will still be viewable. The African Rainforest Pavilion and Zoomobile operations will not be affected by this closure.

We apologize for any inconvenience.
