Description

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.

Please note: Some locations may have porcupines in the enclosure as well.

A Wonderful Meerkat Experience

Our trip in September to the Animal Experience came as a present and it made a wonderful gift. We did so enjoy our visit, the meerkats being such incredible characters, and the information and anecdotes by Victoria, our guide, were a great addition. We came home with lots of photographs of the meerkats feeding out of our hands and climbing all over us. Afterwards we saw two coatis who were amazing and so responsive considering their history. We look forward to returning to see them again and seeing more of the reptiles, owls and birds of prey.

Fab encounter

We absolutely loved our experience from start to finish. We got there early so we could get the maximum amount of time with the meerkats. We were shown round by Harley who was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We couldn’t believe how intimate the experience would be. I had meerkats raiding my handbag which was hilarious. We were given lots of info whilst petting them. I took loads of videos and photos and enjoyed sitting on the floor with them. Their enclosure was clean, well contained and had lots of things in there to keep them entertained. After our encounter, Harley even showed us other animals like the Coati and charmeleon which we hadn’t paid for so I thought this was a lovely extra! I would deffo go back again and highly recommend others to go and visit this place. Make sure you book an appointment to avoid disappointment.

Great gift

I purchased this for my friend's 60th birthday she was unable to go as the had a fall. Activity superstore were brilliant and extended the voucher so my friend could go and we had a fantastic experience. Sheldon wildlife zoo even gave me an adoption pack and free entry for a year and a fridge magnet! We loved meeting the meerkats.

Wonderful meerkat experince

This experience was given to us as a birthday present for me and my sister, we had such a fantastic time. The keepers at the Knockhatch Adventure park were very friendly and welcoming. We were surprised with how hands on we got to be with their meerkats, where they jumped onto us and able to feed them. We had so much fun that the time with them flew by. We were also able to wander around the rest of the park and refreshments were provided as part of the experience. I would recommend this experience to anyone.

Brilliant lemurs

This was a gift, we chose to do it at Shaldon wildlife park which I 100% recommend. We had choice of ring tail or red bellied (red bellied more friendly so we went for them!) they were immediately jumping all over us, we both thought it was much better than expected. Keeper gave us interesting facts too. I’m not sure how much this cost but I noted you can just buy the experience from the zoo for a good price, but if we hadn’t been given the experience we never would have found it, so I’d say it was worth it (especially if you want the adoption/membership etc)

Marvellous Meerkats

The experience was a Christmas present and wow what a present. I was there with my sister and niece. The staff were very helpful and knowledgable and the meekats were amazing. I was being used as lookout and at one stage had 2 meerkats on my shoulder which was fantastic. Feeding was hilarious and they mob you for the mealworms. I will definitely be coming back and wonderful experience I will not forget.
