Artist's Description

This enormous Silver Back Gorilla was alone on an island at the Longleat Safari Park in Wiltshire, he is 75 years of age and lost his ’partner 3 years ago!
In 1966, Longleat caused a revolution in the world of zoological collections by becoming the first location outside Africa to open a drive-through Safari Park.

Despite the understandable initial concerns of locals with regard to the introduction of lions to Wiltshire, the Safari Park concept has been a great success and Longleat’s ground-breaking innovation has been repeated at wildlife collections all over the world

Some 40 years later this unique way of showing animals in their natural surroundings still delights and amazes hundreds of thousands of visitors to Longleat each year.
