Description

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet a real group of meerkats. You will get up close and personal with these fascinating creatures at a dedicated centre that specialises in their care. You will spend quality time really getting to know the animals as they climb all over you and feed from your hands! Each meerkat has its own individual character that is a joy to discover.

At some locations you will also have the opportunity to explore the rest of the centre at your own leisure.

Once you arrive you will head straight for the meerkat enclosure. After a health and safety briefing, you will need to wash your hands before entering the enclosure. The meerkat specialist will be on hand to give you insightful information and oversee you as you interact with the animals. You will be presented with a small tub of meal worms or fruit to feed the meerkats with.

There will be plenty of opportunities to take photos and videos of this unforgettable experience.

Please note: Some locations may have porcupines in the enclosure as well.

Lots of fun

This experience was a treat for my 8 year old twin daughters. They had so much fun. Both got to cuddle and stroke the meerkats and one even sat on my daughters head ! They haven't stopped talking about it since.

Friendly, informative fun

I was given this "meet the Meerkat" as a gift for xmas 2015 & wasnt particularly looking forward to it so forgot to book until the last minute. I couldn't go to my nearest one as they were closed for renovation so went to the cambridge one. Well im so glad i did. The young men that looked after the animals were so informative & friendly. We were offered the chance to hold snakes & lizards before we saw the Meerkat but as im not into that sort of thing i declined, by the time we'd spent time in the Meerkat (& racoon type animals, yin & yang) inclosure i asked if they would still let me hold the lizards & snakes & the lads couldn't have been more helpful. From not really wanting to go on the experience, i ended up having THE best day out ever & wanting to return. Cant thank the staff enough.

Meerkats

I bought this last Christmas as a joint present for my husband and myself and we were very pleased with the experience. At first glance it looked as if it wouldn't be good because we were inside in a small enclosure. This proved to be unfounded as we had over an hour of quality time with 3 very active meerkats running all over us in a small group. The accompanying information throughout was also very interesting and informative and we even fed them mealworm. Excellent experience and would be keen to do again. .
