Leap into Action and come visit our cheeky and inquisitive Lemur troop!

Due to current restrictions, this encounter is not currently running and we are unable to take bookings or create a waitlist.

Please keep an eye on the website in 2022 for when this encounter will be available again.

Join one of our knowledgeable Primate keepers as they guide you through the lemur walkthrough and introduce you to our cheeky and inquisitive troop.
Learn and participate in different enrichment techniques used to keep our Lemur boys both physically and mentally healthy, whilst also encouraging natural behaviours.

Each encounter will be unique, allowing our keepers to let the individual animals shine and give them the choice and control on how they participate.

The encounter is a brief experience that lasts a couple of minutes with each visitor booked, however please plan up to 15 minutes to meet your host and keeper, and hear the safety briefing.

When you purchase a Close-up Encounter you are directly contributing to Zoos Victoria's work to fight wildlife extinction.
