Lemur Wood was one of the UK’s first walk-through zoo enclosures and is still one of our most popular. Come face to face with the stars of the Dreamworks’ film, Madagascar and watch them jump across the walkway within inches of you! Their favourite pastime is sitting in yoga positions enjoying the sunshine!
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. The three species are ring-tailed (the most recognisable of all lemurs), red-ruffed and red-fronted lemurs.
It is important that you don’t feed or try to stroke the lemurs in Lemur Wood. We know it can be tempting as they seem friendly, but they are not domesticated animals and have very strictly controlled diets.
Lemur Wood will be open at certain times during the day and will have one of our team there to answer any questions you may have. However, this is weather/staff permitting and may be closed due to unforeseen circumstances. Please check with a member of staff on the day of your visit.
