Opening of Gorilla Volcano Thursday at Pairi DaizaThursday, 04 August 2016 19:23
The Gorilla Volcano, a project of over 11 million euros, is the new space of Jardin des mondes (Garden of the Worlds). The space, with an area of 5,000 square metres, is made up of three islands and two volcanoes. The first volcano, where Wazungu is located, will be open on Thursday from 10:30 to 15:00 and from 16:30 to 18:30.
The gorillas come from Central Africa on the Atlantic coast. Numbering close to 100,000 about two decades ago, they are presently considered to be in critical danger of extinction. Essentially herbivores, their food consists mainly of roots, herbs, leaves, and bark, as well as fruits of the season, added Pairi Daiza. The strength of an adult gorilla can equal that of six men.
