Lemur Experience

Calling all animal lovers! Come and take part in our amazing face-to-face lemur encounter

In this incredible experience, prepare to be surrounded by our extremely curious, friendly and interactive lemurs – they love to meet new people and get hands on!

Our meet the lemurs experience can be purchased for yourself, for a loved one or a friend. A lemur experience would make the perfect present for any animal lover aged 5 and above!

The lemur encounter is an amazing one-to-one experience which will leave you with memories that you’ll talk about for years to come.

The lemur experience involves hanging out with these inquisitive and friendly animals. You will prepare their favourite snacks and then head inside the enclosure to feed them. You will have a Zoo Keeper dedicated to you so you can unravel their knowledge about the lemur’s cheeky behaviour and naughty habits.

If you are lucky enough, you may get some super photos of these sociable animals as they get up close and personal during your lemur experience. Please note lemurs do not enjoy being touched, so we cannot allow participants to touch or hold our lemurs. On occasion they may curiously climb on your lap, this will be closely monitored by your keeper.
