Our lemur walk-through is open daily from 12.30pm - 2pm on weekdays and 12.30pm - 3pm at weekends.
Walk onto the lemurs’ island in at the Zoo and get seriously close to our beautiful ring-tailed lemurs.
Enter via a bridge over the moat and then walk across the island to the waterfall area where a raised walkway will allow you to get a better view of the lemurs in their favourite spot - sunbathing in the sunshine.
A small viewing area is situated to the front of the enclosure where visitors can stop and watch these energetic primates leaping about, catching a bit of sun and maybe even having a stink fight!
They’ll run rings round you!
