Walking with Lemurs is an exciting 90-minute tour where visitors can walk freely among lemurs and interact with them in their natural habitat, while the Behind-the-Scenes Tour gives visitors the chance to get close-up views of the lemurs, see the Center as only staff members do and learn how it functions on a daily basis.
Lemur Keeper for a Day offers visitors the chance to experience the life of a lemur keeper first-hand and become a caretaker for a day, getting involved in all aspects of the daily husbandry such as feeding, cleaning, and general care.
Experience the Lemur Center through a different medium on the Painting with Lemurs Tour. This exclusive tour delves into the Duke Lemur Center's behavioral enrichment program and takes visitors into one of our new lemur housing areas, where they can watch lemurs painting!
A Photographer's Dream is one of the Center's most popular tours which offers a look at the Center, and it's individual residents through the eyes (or lens) of resident staff photographer, David Haring. Spend a morning traveling through the Center's natural habitat enclosures taking photographs of multiple species of lemurs with David and a few other photographers. This tour is geared towards photographers who are interested capturing the lemurs exhibiting their natural behaviors such as climbing, foraging, climbing, grooming and resting.
