Colobus Crossing

Opening targeted for spring 2019.

The Master Plan for the Louisville Zoo is coming to life! A new African primate exhibit featuring colobus monkeys and Schmidt’s red-tailed monkeys is opening soon!

You and your family can sit on our expanded outdoor dining patio, munching on  delicious goodies from the African Outpost and observe colobus monkeys and Schmidt’s red-tailed monkeys as they leap and swing from place to place within their new habitat. You may even see them cross directly overhead as you walk through the Zoo. Imagine the squeals of joy, awe and wonder that will come from your children or grandchildren.

The monkeys have arrived in Louisville: 4 male colobus monkeys and 3 red-tailed monkeys. They are getting acquainted with their new home and Zoo keepers during a standard quarantine period. We anticipate the exhibit will open in April 2019!

This expansion was made possible through the supporters of our Leadership Capital Campaign.
