Our guests often ask us for recommendations on things to do at this time of year so we’ve decided to put together this list which includes activities and specific places you can visit during the holidays.

In comparison, gorillas and chimpanzees tend to dedicate 4 or 5 years to their young’s upbringing and, sometimes, looking after several at the same time. Continue Reading →
