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!

When can you go?

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

Very informative and full hands on

I was bought this experience for Christmas. I loved every minute of it. Meercats are so sweet and friendly. The keeper was really informative and was happy to discuss the meercats in great depth. He was a wonderful guy and gave us info on other animals in the zoo. A credit to the zoo seeing as he is a volunteer. I will definately come back and do the experience again.

Meerkat Experience

Really enjoyed the day it was nice that we were only a group of 4 and the girl who showed us the Meerkats was very enthusiastic. As one of the Meerkats was being a bit unsociable she extended the time by 10 minutes so we had more cuddling time. Only problem was the Café was closed for a childrens party and limited choice of sandwiches in the shop. The place could also do with more toilets.

My friend bought me a meerkats experience for Christmas,and it didn't disappoint,I would recommend anyone who has an interest in these inquisitive little creatures to do this and having them climb over you and sit on your lap eating fruit out of a bowl,is really quite magical

Great memories

This is the second time that the children have had this experience, and each time they have loved it. The meerkats were climbing all over them. To top it odd the porcupines were so close too.

Great Day Out!

I bought this for my teenage son for Christmas. I thought it might be fun, and it was. He is not outdoorsy, but loves animals, so it took a bit of pursuading but I am glad we made it. Lots of fresh air and exercise. Our guide was very informative and kind. The llamas were well behaved and good company. Highly recommend.
