Enjoy a thrilling face-to-face encounter with a mob of majestic meerkats with this Meet the Meerkats experience for two.
This is the perfect opportunity to get up close and personal to these cute and sociable creatures and feed them their favourite treats. The meerkats will be curious of you at first and will likely stand up straight on their hind legs and stare at you through beady eyes, before possible using you as a human climbing frame as they cheekily clamber over and around you. If you’re lucky, you might get a cuddle.
Once you arrive at your chosen location, you will head straight for the meerkat enclosure. After a quick health and safety briefing, the meerkat specialist will introduce you to these wonderful animals and will be on hand to give you insightful information and oversee you as you interact with the meerkats. You will also be presented with a small tub of delicious meal worms or tasty fruit to feed to the meerkats.
Each meerkat has their own unique character which is a joy to discover. You’ll want to keep a camera on hand to capture this incredible experience.
**At some locations you will also have the opportunity to explore the rest of the zoo/park at your own leisure.

The Animal Experience (Stretham, Cambridgeshire)
Verity from National Accounts, October 2016
Visiting the meerkats was great. We got to sit in the enclosure with them while we fed them and played with them. I was amazed at how friendly they were! I was also surprised at how spacious and clean the enclosure was. There's plenty of things in there to entertain them and keep them happy and active. The staff were also really friendly, helpful and gave as plenty of background information about each meerkat. After a while of chilling with them all their unique, playful personalities came through! When our time in the meerkat enclosure was over, we were able to hold other reptiles, including a snake.
Make sure you explore the whole centre and visit all of the other animals before you leave as this is included within the voucher package.
