Lemur Experience:
You're invited to enter the world of lovable Lemurs, the baby Lemurs from Madagascar. Only at Jungle Island will you have the opportunity to interact with these furry, golden-eyed primates. The 45-minute Lemur Encounter includes an educational session with the animal trainer and a chance to play with and hold these charming little rascals! The lemurs often make themselves right at home either on guests’ laps, shoulders or heads. (Don’t worry – they don’t charge for their hair styling services.) After a lemur has leaped off of your head, you’ll never be quite the same!

I love this place! Some ticketing errors on my part were quickly resolved and traded so there was no hassles.

A very good zoo park with lots of handling opportunities. We enhanced our day with a private lemur handling experience, complete with photos and video, which we felt was worth the extra cost. We also bought a photo key, entitling us to copies of all the other pictures of our group that were taken by the park staff that day.

Great day got up close and personal with many creatures. Only 10 min drive from south beach. The lemur experience was well worth it we were the only ones in the room and had plenty of time for cuddles, highly recommend!

This place was amazing! We got the Lemur experience and we were there just the two of us. The lemurs were so cute and they were climbing all over us and we got to hold a baby lemur...she was so cute! Also the birds around the park are amazing. I would go here again!

Meeting the Lemurs was fantastic! Such amazing animals, and such an incredible and unique opportunity to get up close and personal with black and white ruffed lemurs (critically endangered) and red ruffed lemurs (endangered). Take a hair brush with you for afterwards - they love to sit on your head! You also get to spend a nice amount of time with them. Jungle Island is very interactive, and the bird show is lots of fun. Be sure to check out the Liger - amazing! We were lucky enough to see two newly hatched Flamingo chicks. All in all a really fun day with lots going on.

This was one of the coolest things I have EVER done! The Lemurs are so friendly and lovable that I wanted to spend the whole day playing with them.

I loved feeding the penguins and being able to pet them, surprisingly they are very soft. The experience was very unique and memorable.
