Join an expert zookeeper inside one of Paradise Wildlife Park's enclosures to meet the meerkats for this unique animal experience. Equipped with your own feeding bowl you'll feed the meerkats by hand, or rather they'll help themselves whilst scrambling all over you! Experiencing first hand the habitat and feeding habits of these fascinating creatures is hilarious and not to be missed.

This a great opportunity to get close to these fascinating animals. You will enter their enclosure with the keeper at feeding time and assist in feeding them - you will find that they are extremely friendly and curious and they will treat you like a human climbing frame!

Included in the experience is a presentation certificate and souvenir t-shirt, but don’t forget to bring your camera to capture your new friends on film!

This experience is available Monday to Sunday, subject to availability, throughout the year.

meerkat experience

This was bought as a joint Xmas gift for my youngest son and me. We took it at the Tropical butterfly house near Sheffield. You are able to use the whole park as part of your day. There are plenty of different animals and birds to see during your visit. Once you go in with the meerkats and keeper it is a joy to fed them snd be sble to interact with them.

Meerkat mob

I was given a meerkat experience at the Shaldon zoo for Xmas. We went in May and it was excellent. Got to sit in the enclosure holding a bowl of food while up to 6 meerkats sat on me and in the bowl. Also got to look around the rest of this small but brilliant zoo. It was a wonderful day, highly recommended.

Happy animals and friendly staff

Apart from initial difficulty in locating the venue, the staff were lovely. We arrived early as we had traveled quite far, and we were allowed to hold a lizard and snake while we waited. It was lovely to see the meerkats up close. The first group we went in with ate some food but then decided it was nap time (fair enough), so we were taken to a second group who were much more awake.

Feeding the Meerkats

This was a gift for my daughter and myself. Small family run enterprise, the experience was just us and the meerkats handler who was very knowledgeable and took loads of pictures for us with them. Meerkats were very friendly creatures and we were able to feed them by hand. You could be as hands on as you want and they looked relaxed & very comfortable whilst sitting on you and enjoyed having their tummies rubbed. They also have a small reptile enclosure which you can view and have the opportunity to handle a lizard or snake which my daughter did. I would thoroughly recommend this experience if you like animals for both children and as we were adults alike.

You Need To Do This!!

I bought this for my daughter's 21st and she asked me to go with her, not sure who was more excited!! We went to Shaldon Zoo in Devon, which we hadn't been to before. The staff were all very friendly. The keeper that took us on this experience was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions and we didn't feel rushed. All in all a very enjoyable time.
