Reservations Essential

Please note that all visits are by appointment only and that you must have tour reservations to see the animals. You can explore general and premium tour options via our tours homepage. 

No Pets, Please

Because the DLC houses critically endangered primates, we cannot allow pet animals anywhere on the DLC groundsnot even inside your vehicle. For our lemurs’ health and safety and for your pets’, please leave your pup at home. If you have a service dog, see the “Accessibility” tab on our Visitor FAQ.


We’re located at 3705 Erwin Road in Durham, less than 10 minutes from Duke’s West Campus. Click the ‘Directions to DLC’ link below to view step-by-step directions to the Lemur Center from Duke, Durham, Chapel Hill, Raleigh, and Greensboro.

Directions to DLC

Using GPS or Google Maps? Occasionally these will direct visitors to the gated forestry entrance off Cornwallis Road. Please do not use the Cornwallis entrance, as Cornwallis Road is closed for construction. If your GPS takes you to the Cornwallis entrance in error, please follow the map below to our main entrance on Erwin Road.


If you have questions at any time, please call (919) 401-7240. The Lemur Landing staff will be happy to help!
