Elephant Area – Hanover Zoo
Phase 1: “Gorillaberg” – The biggest representation of an enclosure for gorillas on the theme of the African forest and gorilla mountain. Instructive representation. More than 1,500m² of decors were produced by AAB: artificial rocks, waterfalls, caves, themed floors, bridges, etc.
Phase 2: AAB built a replica of an Indian palace and an area of ruins on 3 hectares. More than 10,000m² of recreated decors.
Phase 3: AAB produced an African landscape for the lion and giraffe areas: rock cliffs, river banks, gullies, African bridges, etc.
Phases 4 and 5: AAB produced an African landscape for the hippopotamus and pink flamingo areas (aquatic and terrestrial views): eroded banks, gullies, rocks, etc.
The zoo concept was designed to allow the public to travel in the natural biotopes of the animals presented, while making the trip amusing and educational for the children (river trip with boats drawn by cables through the fog in a very realistic simulation).
