Around 165 million years ago, Madagascar started to become separated from Africa by a vast body of water. This isolation led to the evolution of a primate found nowhere else in the world…the lemur!
Lost Madagascar is Colchester Zoo’s very own little piece of Madagascar right in the centre of the Zoo, providing visitors a unique and immersive experience and allowing the chance to be closely surrounded by these charismatic, popular animals. Discover a troop of ring-tailed lemurs within an exciting habitat. Watch them leap around you as you stroll through their serene retreat.
Please be aware that the Lost Madagascar Lemur Walkthrough houses free-moving primates who are naturally inquisitive and may land on visitors. We strongly advise all visitors riding the Lost Madagascar Train and entering the Lemur Walkthrough to wear a face mask for the safety of the animals and visitors.
