The Warsaw Zoological Garden is a scientific zoo located in Ratuszowa Street that opened its doors to public in March 1928. The zoo covers about 40 hectares and is home to over 4,000 animals representing more than 500 species. The zoo is an accredited member of the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA) and the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA). Their first gorillas arrived to Warsaw in August and September 2008; they were two males called M'Tonge and Azizi. After some years, more males were moved to this zoo, contributing to keep all the bachelor males for the EEP program. Females were never moved to Warsaw as of today.

The Ape House was opened in September 2008, and is home to the zoo's gorillas and chimpanzees. Gorillas live on an outdoor yard that has an area of 10000 square meters, surrounded by a water pit and provided with swinging ropes, trees and other toys as enrichment for the animals. Visitors can observe the apes from the paths surrounding the enclosure, as well as from glass windows (both at the outdoor and indoor enclosures).
