Most tours have an outdoor component. Please dress accordingly for weather.
Rainy days – Tours will go out rain or shine provided there is no lighting or thunder in the immediate area. Umbrellas are welcome. If you would like to reschedule your visit due to weather, please call 919-401-7240.
Hot days- There are shaded areas on the tour path and we avoid standing in the direct sun for long periods of time. We now have benches along the tour path for resting. Water is welcome and encouraged on the tour.
Cold days- The lemurs are allowed outside access anytime the weather is 45 degrees or above. This does not guarantee that the lemurs will choose to be outside. If there is not good viewing outside we will bring you into two indoor viewing areas.
The entire tour path and gift shop are ADA accessible. Please feel free to bring wheelchairs and strollers as needed. The path is concrete allowing for easy access. We do have a wheelchair on site and a golf cart to aid in transportation for those who need help. Please request these items if needed when booking your tour.
You are welcome to bring water on your tour. We kindly ask that you refrain from bringing other beverages or snacks on the tour. The lemurs get jealous!
Lemur landing gift shop does sell cold beverages for $1.00, but does not offer snacks or have a café of any sorts. There are many restaurants within five minutes of the Center to eat before or after your tour (Erwin Road, Hillsborough Rd, Hwy 15/501).
