All gorillas at the PGFV were rescued by wildlife authorities as orphans of the bushmeat trade. Gorillas at the Rehabilitation Centre are kept away from human contact to preserve their reintroduction potential.

PGFV collaborates with a local ecotourism partner to facilitate the transportation of visitors from the nearby town of Omboué to Evengue-Ezango Island, where the Gorilla Sanctuary is located. Reservations can be made by contacting us at least 24 hours in advance. Once at Evengue-Ezango Island, PGFV staff will provide a conservation lecture prior to each visit.

Because gorillas require routine and peace during feeding times, we reserve the right to postpone a visit. Visits may not be possible at times when a gorilla is sick or stressed. A typical visit will last about 90 minutes including the conservation lecture.
