Share a moment with Kiki and her five-month-old baby Kambiri in the world's most innovative indoor gorilla exhibit at the Franklin Park Zoo. Say hello to a herd of giraffe in the "Savannah." Spot a white-bearded wildebeest on the "Serengeti Crossing."

Franklin Park Zoo (part of Zoo New England) is a 72-acre site nestled within Boston's historic Franklin Park. Here, guests can visit the most innovative and intimate indoor gorilla exhibit in the world! Visitors to the Tropical Forest can stand face-to-face with the Zoo's seven western lowland gorillas at one of five glass viewing stations at a state-of-the-art indoor exhibit. This is a truly unforgettable experience!
