Feed the lemurs!

Our Lemurs love to meet new people so what better way to say hello than to join them in their enclosure!

Hertfordshire Zoo offers you the chance to experience first-hand the inquisitive nature of these interesting animals. To make sure that your day is one to remember, your Meet the Lemurs animal experience will begin with welcome drinks in the Zoo HQ!

After you’ve enjoyed your welcome drinks you will be introduced to one of our brilliant Primate Keepers who will escort you to the Lemur enclosure in time for your important health and safety briefing.

Our Lemurs are extremely curious and very friendly, so during your time with these friendly animals you may be treated as a human climbing frame after entering their enclosure. You will be given a specially prepared bowl of their favourite food and you will even have the opportunity to feed the lemurs yourself; making this an experience you will want to tell your friends and family about, so remember to bring your camera!

Throughout your experience the keeper will tell you about our Lemurs cheeky behaviour, feeding, habits and habitat, along with information about the conservation work Hertfordshire Zoo supports. Our Meet the Lemurs package is extremely popular and it’s no surprise why! A chance to get up close and personal with some of nature’s quirkiest creatures doesn’t come around often, so book your experience package today and prepare to make lasting memories!

To make sure that our experience is perfect for you we have outlined key information about the package below.
