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.

Friendly staff, passionate about the animals

We went to Shaldon Zoo in Devon for our Meerkat Experience. All of the staff we met on the day were very friendly, informative, and passionate about animal welfare. We were able to enter the Meerkat enclosure and let them take food from dishes we held. Great to get so close to these lovely animals. Recommend a visit!

Perfect experience!

This was brought by myself, my Sister and my Mum as part of my Dad’s Christmas (2016) present. We were all so impressed. All 4 of us managed to go to enjoy the experience. It was very easy to get to from our house (Bedfordshire). All of the staff were very friendly and the place had a lovely atmosphere. The young boy we had on our experience was amazing. He was really passionate and very knowledgeable about not only Meerkats but all of the animals we saw as part of the experience. We saw meerkats, coati bears, birds of prey, ferrets, turtles, lizards and snakes. What a great experience and will definitely recommend it!! Thank you so much The Animal Experience :)

Such a fun experience!

We were bought this as a joint Christmas present, but we didn't use it until the following August because we wanted a nice sunny day! We went to Knockhatch adventure park in hailshsm East Sussex and I'm so pleased we chose this location to do the meerkat experience at. We had around 40 mins in the enclosure, with a guide who knew so much about the meerkats and didn't stop talking! We fed them raw veg and they jumped on our laps, sat on my fiancés shoulder, and took food from our hands. I didn't expect them to be so confident and make so much contact with us so it was a great bonus. There were baby's when we went which were so adorable and tiny. We go free entry to the rest of the park and when it finished we got a certificate and free meerkat teddy key rings. We also got a free hot drink in the cafe. Would absolutely recommend this experience for all ages!
