Three delightful gorillas and five amusing chimpanzees await your visit to Equatorial Africa, only a few metres’ distance from the heart of the city
The best idea to visit Valencia city and zoo is to rent a car in Valencia´s airport or city center. Bioparc has new residents: the playful flirtation of female gorillas Dorley and Fossey, in contrast with the coyness of Mambie the male gorilla, delight visitors in this small piece of Africa. The gorillas play and share their food with an Old World De Brazza monkey, characterised by his white beard, and with five charming chimpanzees, four of whom have come from the former Viveros zoo. The recently opened 3,000 square metres space will be inhabited by more gorillas and new species such as the Talapoin, the white-naped Mangabey and other Old World (Cercopithecidae) monkeys. Throughout July and August Bioparc will stay open until 9pm to make the most of the pleasant and friendly company of these new inhabitants.
