The Pangani Forest Exploration Trail will fully reopen on December 21 2014 after a lengthy refurbishment.

The aviary, research station and underwater viewing areas have been closed since September, although other areas of the trail have been accessible.

The reopening comes just in-time for one of the busiest weeks of the year.

I presume that's the bridge/walkway inside the aviary? The only other bridge I can think of on the Trail was in the part that was still open during the refurb. -Rob

It was mostly bridge repairs.

It's open. Any changes?

We were there the 1st week in Dec and I feel like all this was open.... Definitely saw the underwater viewing of fish and hippos. Is the Aviary just the outdoor part with all the birds? We walked through there too.

Any new word on this? I'm hoping it's back up by my trip Nov 18th to 25th. I won't be able to go on my last day but fingers crossed it gets finished before then.

As far as I know, yes it will. It would be great if they added some new species back there.

Otherwise it's staying the same?

The bird aviary will have new poles and mesh put up.

Last visit we saw something that almost did that. All the bachelor gorillas got in a big fight. Pounding and running and growling and chasing. Got some really cool pictures. Some of those guys had some scary expressions.
