Twilight Tour (Seasonal)

This summer, join the DLC for our special limited-time Twilight Tours! During the steamy summer months, our lemurs take it easy during the heat of the day; but, as the sun sets and the temperatures cool, they become increasingly lively and their energy levels tend to peak.

On these guided public tours, you’ll enjoy the spectacle of our prosimian friends foraging for food, performing their evening vocalizations and, finally, preparing to hunker down for the night. Our dedicated staff and volunteers love spending their evenings introducing visitors to the amazing lemurs of the DLC, so make sure you keep this in mind for your summer plans!

Like our standard Lemurs Live tour, our Twilight Tour is a broad introduction to the DLC, its mission, and its residents. The experience is perfect for a wide audience.

Days and times: Twilight tours are seasonal offerings and can be booked during the summer months only. For 2019, our twilight tours will be offered on Saturday and Sunday evenings from May 18 – August 18. Please call (919) 401-7240 to make your reservation today!
