In Pongoland you can experience our closest relatives playing, climbing and foraging. On wooden walkways over the water you will pass through spacious outdoor enclosures to our central attraction: a tropical dome. Through the cave entrance visitors enter a habitat that closely resembles a natural tropical humid climate. Experience how the gentle silver back patrols his territory and see orang-utans climbing on trees and ropes while exotic birds fly about.
Apes: every day 01:30 PM
Pongoland houses the Wolfgang Köhler Primate Research Center. In conjunction with the Max Planck Institute, researchers study the behaviour, perception and communication of apes – and what’s more you can even look over their shoulders while they are doing it. For this the best time to come to Pongoland is in the morning.
