Did you know

- The heaviest elephant on record weighed in at 10,886 kg and measured 13 feet in height!

- A gorilla can live up to 40 or even 50 years and will have left home and started their own family by the age of 15

Things to see:

African Savannah

Explore the African desert and spot majestic elephants and rhinos wandering around their grassy savannah home, as giraffes roam wild whilst zebras graze on nearby bushes. Visitors can admire these exotic creatures in their element – right in the centre of Dublin! Look up into the trees, too, where you can catch a glimpse of the chimpanzees playing and swinging from the branches.

Asian Forests

The Asian Forests were inspired by the Gir forest of India and the Sumatran forest in Indonesia, so visitors can expect a wide range of animals from endangered Asian lions to stunning Sumatran tigers. As well as these feline friends, the Asian Forests are also home to a troop of Suwalesi crested macaques.

Gorilla Rainforest

One of the zoo’s most fascinating habitats is the Gorilla Rainforest, home to a troop of western lowland gorillas. The family includes Lena, the mother of the pack, Mayani, Kituba and Kambiri, her offspring. The zoo’s aim is to introduce more gorillas into the habitat and double their pack.
