Description

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!

Brilliant lemurs

This was a gift, we chose to do it at Shaldon wildlife park which I 100% recommend. We had choice of ring tail or red bellied (red bellied more friendly so we went for them!) they were immediately jumping all over us, we both thought it was much better than expected. Keeper gave us interesting facts too. I’m not sure how much this cost but I noted you can just buy the experience from the zoo for a good price, but if we hadn’t been given the experience we never would have found it, so I’d say it was worth it (especially if you want the adoption/membership etc)

Marvellous Meerkats

The experience was a Christmas present and wow what a present. I was there with my sister and niece. The staff were very helpful and knowledgable and the meekats were amazing. I was being used as lookout and at one stage had 2 meerkats on my shoulder which was fantastic. Feeding was hilarious and they mob you for the mealworms. I will definitely be coming back and wonderful experience I will not forget.

Great experience!

Great experience, 100% worth travelling a bit further if you can, to go to The animal experience in Stretham as some sites don't allow you to touch or feed the Meerkats but here you get right in with them, my 10 year old daughter loved it, all the staff were lovely and Jen who we had for our experience was very knowledgeable and you can see they love the animals and look after them. Well worth it :-) There are a few other animals to have a look at too before or after your experience.

A brilliant time

This was bought for me for Mothering Sunday by my Daughter as I love Meerkats, and I was not disappointed they are such great characters and so gentle and did not mind being stroked at all. The staff are very knowledgeable and helpful to ensure you have a good experience.
