Budongo Trail

The Budongo Trail

Edinburgh Zoo's Budongo Trail allows visitors to see our chimpanzees in the world's most innovative, interactive chimpanzee enclosure. Watch these amazing creatures in their home and learn all about the links between humans and our closest relative. The exhibit boasts a huge indoor-outdoor environment that can house up to 40 chimps. The Outdoor climbing and vegetation area provides fun, foraging, and exercise, and stimulates the chimps to use and show natural physical, social and mental behaviours that you would see in the wild. There is also a network of indoor rooms for the chimps with different environmental conditions such as temperature, humidity and lighting, so each can have a preferred "hangout". Its not all about the Chimpanzees though! There are plenty of areas for visitors with viewing galleries, plasma screens, interactive displays, murals and live plants.
