Journey to the forests of East Africa to join a dedicated team of conservationists. Get closer than ever before to a troop of endangered gorillas from the depths of Rwanda in a new exhilarating perspective! Enjoy a 360 degree visual experience with a motion seat, immersive VR headset and audio.
With only 1,000 mountain gorillas left in their natural habitat, this one-of-a-kind encounter gives you the chance to engage with this extraordinary species and learn more about how they behave with one another. Witness the alpha silverback protect its family when a subordinate gorilla fights for leadership. All from the comfort of Chester Zoo!
