This place was great. I loved it so much I went two days in a row. I'd never seen drills before, and this place just happens to have the second largest captive population of them. Plus there are gorillas and chimps, other primates and more.
It seems like the animals here are pretty happy and well cared for. They're certainly all in a better place than they had been since all the animals (except those born here) were saved from disgusting poachers or smugglers. Since a lot of those animals can't be returned to the wild, they get to live here and teach people about how awesome these animals are. Ninety percent of the visitors are Cameroonian, which is great. When I was there, they were in the process of rehabilitating and releasing dozens of African grey parrots (my favorite) that had been trapped in illegal pet traders glue traps. They cleaned them up, made sure they were healthy and were slowly releasing them back into the wild. I saw one pair fly over me when I was touring the botanical gardens the next day. It was kinda magical.
