Kolmården Djupark opened its doors to the public in 1965 overlooking Bråviken bay in Sweden. Back then, it was public, but In 1997 the zoo was turned over from municipal ownership to private ownership and since 2001, Parks and Resorts Scandinavia is taking operation of the zoo. As many others, Kolmården Djupark is member of EAZA and WAZA and is home to the only dolphins, gorillas, bush dogs, asian elephants and other species of the country. Kicki, a female western lowland gorilla, was the first of her species to arrive to the park in October 1966 from Africa. Enzo was the first baby gorilla to born at Kolmården; he was born in April 2006 to parents Naomi and Efata.

The enclosure for gorillas at Kolmården has an outdoor area that imitates an island being surrounded by a river which was remodeled in 2009 and is provided with ropes, tree trunks and wooden caves as enrichment. There is also an indoor area which was built a long time ago and where gorillas stay during cold days.
