Overview

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.

My son bought this as a birthday present for me, what a great choice he made! My partner and I were able to go right into the meerkats enclosure and stroke and play with them. They climbed all over us and were very friendly. The guy who conducted the experience was informative and friendly. I would recommend this to any animal lover and would love to go again.

My husband and I received this experience as a gift and really enjoyed it. We sat with the meerkats for half an hour while one of the knowledgeable staff told us about their behaviour as well as about the individual meerkats themselves who all seemed to have their own personalities. The centre doesn't look much from the road but inside there are so many animals! While we were on site we also got to hold/walk a chameleon and look at the many other reptiles and birds of prey so we spent some time here. The staff were friendly and knowledgable.

I had this given to me as a birthday present. It was for two and my daughter came with me. I have to say this place, though small, is amazing. The staff are helpful, polite and courteous and hold a wealth of knowledge about the creatures in their care. We had about 1/2 hr. with the Meerkats and it was just us, so we had their undivided attention. I have to say it was a fantastic experience. They are such bundles of cute, inquisitive fun. We were told all about their family group, likes, dislikes and also able to feed them, an experience in itself. We were then shown around some of the other creatures, for which experiences available, and also given the opportunity to hold either a snake or a chameleon. I had held a snake before so chose the chameleon. An extraordinary little chap, but highly amusing and so interesting to see in close contact. I would highly recommend anyone considering a visit, allow a up to a couple of hours including your experience, and there is a small but reasonably priced gift area for those little souvenirs.

Simply the best Meerkat experience ever. I spent a full hour in their company feeding them(climbing up onto my knee etc), watching them play and then even this was topped by having the alpha male fall ASLEEP in my arms for about 25 mins!!!!!!

This experience was a Christmas gift. I was given the option of location and chose Hoo Farm. At our allotted time, we were taken to one of the Meerkat enclosures which was occupied by two hand reared meerkats. We sat in the enclosure and the meerkats were happy to sit on our laps and run around all over us (and up trouser legs). It was so wonderful to be able to play with them (must remain seated). We were then taken to another enclosure where the wilder meerkats lived. No handling here! We were able to hand feed the meerkats but care should be taken as meerkats have sharp teeth! Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the meerkat experience at Hoo Farm and would happily do it again.

The experience with the Meerkats was brilliant, they're amazing animals. Very friendly & cheeky (one was insistent on trying to eat my shoe laces!). Watching them run round & play was great. One got very comfortable on my lap & just sat there while I tickled it's belly!
