Lemur Wood

You are here

Unfortunately, Lemur Wood remains closed due to COVID-19 Restrictions. 

Lemur Wood was one of the UK’s first walk-through zoo enclosures and is still one of our most popular. It offers you the opportunity to share your space with the stars of the DreamWorks’ film, “Madagscar”, with no glass or bars in the way. 

Always favourites with our younger visitors, we have three species of lemur residing in this wooded area overlooking a lake full of flamingos, rare geese and ducks. These are ring-tailed, red-ruffed and red-fronted lemurs. They can be quite cheeky and will jump across the walkway within inches of you, but their favourite pastime is sitting in yoga positions enjoying the sunshine!

It is important that you don’t feed the lemurs in Lemur Wood. We know it’s tempting as they’re cute and seem friendly, but they are wild animals and they have very strictly controlled diets. If you see anyone else feeding them, please feel free to let them know, too.
