Reviews

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.

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.

Great experience

Received this as a Christmas present and enjoyed every second. Experience lasted about half an hour and the meerkats were fantastic. The keepers delayed their lunch so the meerkats were really keen to eat when we arrived. They jumped on my lap and fed from the bowl I was holding. The gift experience also included free entry into the zoo.

Unique experience!

I bought the meerkat experience as a birthday present for my partner. The whole thing was fantastic, got to have real hands on time feeding the meerkats and then having them climb on us. The staff at the centre are very knowledgeable and friendly too, happy to answer all questions about all the animals there. Would definitely buy again and recommend to anyone, brilliant day Out!
