Um... This is the largest collection of lemurs outside of Madagascar. Usually requires making reservations in advance, but we highly recommend you check this out!

The Duke Lemur Center is the largest lemur sanctuary in the world outside of Madagascar. Make a reservation well in advance (visits are by appointment only) to go on a guided tour around grounds that are part of Duke forest. Some of the lemurs are in enclosures, but seasonally others are free to roam parts of the forest. They even have a rare nocturnal Aye-Aye lemur - a strange creature that is well worth the visit alone.
