  • The gift shop has everything that a Lemur obsessed person would love. Lemur tours are now open! The walking with Lemurs tour was amazing! The Lemurs went about their daily activities, and we were able to enjoy watching them do it.
  • Tour guide was super positive and respectful. She was extremely knowledgeable about the lemurs and her love of these creatures truly showed with every word she spoke. I learned so much about lemurs.
