Located in the center of Budapest at the Városliget Park, a nature reserve, and inaugurated in August 1866, Budapest Zoo and Botanical Garden is the oldest zoo in Hungary and one of the oldest worldwide. They keep about 5000 animals of 730 different kind of species. Liesel and Golo (still at the park) were their first gorillas; they arrived to the zoo in April and May 1989 respectively and they are the parents of Dango, who was the first gorilla to be born at this institution. He is living currently at Shanghai Zoo since April 2007.

The facility for gorillas was rebuilt in 2003 together with the whole Ape House, where there's another facility holding orangutans. Gorillas' facility consists on a big outdoor prairie, two indoor enclosures of 250 square meters and some other not visible bedrooms used as quarantine and where they are kept during night.
