Visit lemur research stations
If you’re interested in learning about lemur conservation, Africa Exclusive can arrange a visit to SAVA Conservation, a research station run by Duke University. The Berenty Private Reserve is another hotspot for lemur field studies, and the lemur you’ll meet there are completely unconcerned by the presence of humans.
Learn about more obscure species
The Verreaux's sifaka are particularly energetic, dancing and performing aerial acrobatics, as if for your entertainment! You’ll be able to observe lemur up close, including a few of the nocturnal species.
Lemurs normally have long and pointed noses. They have a variety of fur colours, range in size and often their tail is longer than their body, helping to balance as they leap through the forest. Like many primates, they have opposable thumbs and long grasping toes; instead of claws, they have nails.
