Getting Here

Please note that all tours are by appointment only, and that you must have tour reservations to see the animals. You can explore general + premium tour options via our tours homepage – we offer tours for all ages, budgets, and backgrounds!

Tours often book weeks in advance, and generally we cannot accommodate walk-in visitors. You are, however, always welcome to call us just in case we have tour openings remaining on a particular day: (919) 401-7240. It never hurts to check, especially if you’re open to multiple types of tours!

The gift shop is open to the public without appointment from 9:00 a.m. ’til 4:00 p.m. seven days a week. Parking is simple and free.

Address and special instructions

We’re located at 3705 Erwin Road in Durham, less than 10 minutes from Duke’s West Campus.

Using a gps or Google Maps? Occasionally these will direct visitors to the gated forestry entrance off Cornwallis Road. If this happens, please don’t turn onto this gravel drive. Instead, follow these easy directions to enter via our main entrance:

1. Continue straight on Cornwallis.
2. At the light, turn right onto Erwin.
3. Turn right onto Lemur Lane.
4. Follow Lemur Lane until reaching our parking lot.
