The Meerkat Experience gives you the chance to get up close and personal to these beautiful animals.
Our Meerkats are naturally curious and sociable, and they usually can’t wait to meet new people. In this experience you will meet our meerkat family and we will teach you about the complexity of family life of this dynamic little mammal, as well as each animal's unique personality.
We let the Meerkats decide how much they would like to interact, although when the food comes out it’s usually hard to keep them away! You will walk away from this unique experience with a new understanding of this inquisitive animal grinning from ear to ear.
