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!

What a great experience

A friendly family run centre with great knowledge and no question too ridiculous. We had a wonderful experience with the Meerkats, feeding and handling them, (they get everywhere in the search for food!). Watching them interact with each other was a real education and our guide was very informative. After our session we took up the offer to handle some Royal Pythons and my wife who is an arachnophobe, was offered the chance to face her fear and hold a tarantula, which to my surprise she did. Overall this was a real treat for us and we would like to say thanks to the family and staff for giving us a great experience.

What an Amazing Experience!

I bought the tickets for the MeerKat experience back in April, so glad I did. We visited The Animal Experience at Stretham, Cambridgeshire on 29/7/2017 and our slot was at 3pm. Four family members were participating and my husband was a spectator and photographer. We all really enjoyed ourselves, George took us in to meet the MeerKats and explained all the interesting facts about them, answering any questions we had with such ease. We were allowed to handle and feed the Meerkats although they were happy to climb all over you and sit on your shoulders. A warning they have very long sharp claws which can dig in and they like shoes! As their enclosure is full of sawdust and there outside pen of sand, if you sit on the floor with them, as we did, you do tend to get messy. Luckily I brought a small brush with us to brush ourselves down before we left. After our session had finished, George took us around to see some of the other animals, which was an added bonus, sharing his knowledge again he explained about each animal in turn, and just before we left we were allowed to hold a snake, which I never dreamt I would do. An amazing afternoon spent with the animals, took some great photo's and the memories we made will last a very long time.
