Ever dreamed of brunching with a troop of gorillas? You're in luck. You can enjoy a pancake breakfast at Calgary Zoo and spend time with some furry friends.

Calgary Zoo is hosting a weekly gorilla breakfast where you can hear all about its troop of West Lowland Gorillas and get an exclusive visit to the African Rainforest building for an early morning visit before the zoo opens.

As part of the breakfast, you'll be able to help yourself to a pancake breakfast, before heading to a gorilla interpretive talk where you can learn all about the amazing creatures.

The Gorilla Breakfast is on every Saturday from July 2 through to August 27, 2022. Doors open at 7:15 a.m. and the breakfast event runs from 7:30 a.m. – 9:15 a.m.

If you're lucky, you'll even get to see the littlest member of the gorilla troop. Eyare – a baby West Lowland Gorilla – was born in April this year.

As well as a private tour of the gorilla's home, your breakfast ticket also includes day admission to the zoo where you can see everything from tigers, grizzly bears and red pandas.

Tickets need to be bought in advance so get booking now!
