Things to know:

What you can expect for your encounter

Guests are taken in throughout the day at 15-minute intervals. Groups of up to 4 people are taken into the adventure at one time. This keeper-supervised adventure is in a shaded, screened enclosure. However, we reserve the right to make last-minute decisions regarding the group visit to ensure that it’s a safe and enjoyable experience for our guests, our keepers, and, most especially, our lemurs. The adventure area is handicap accessible. Service animals are not allowed in the exhibit.

If the weather conditions are questionable, please call ahead to check if we are still selling tickets. Adventures are not available if there is lightning in the area or if it’s storming. Animal feedings and the level of interactions are dependent on the animal’s temperament and interest in participation.
