    I had this experience back last year 2015 and it was a time I will never ever forget. It was amazing. The lemurs was fantastic and I learnt so much. The Keeper Ed was brilliant and very informative. I would say, if you want to do an experience then go for it. I am coming back over next year and am planning what to do next.
    The lemurs are such amazing animal’s, certainly was an experience never to be forgot. I never thought I would be so close in my life. You will witness first hand their behaviour and how they live and communicate and will witness feeding. Watching them feed fascinating. I have taken away not only lovely memories but some fab photographs. I would say Go For It, Give It A Go. First class animals and first class staff
