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.

Great fun had by all

I purchased a Meerkat Experience for two for my daughter and I. She had been learning about meerkats at school and was very excited about being in with them. We both had a fantastic time learning about these lovely animals and having them run over and round us. We got to hand feed them and stroke them and it was a wonderful time and not one we will forget in a hurry. We will be going back to have a reptile experience another time.

Meerkat Heaven!

My son was given a Meerkat Encouter experience for Christmas. We went along to Knockhatch Adventure Park in Hailsham and had the best day out! The staff are so friendly and helpful. We were allowed into the Meerkat enclosure and spent a good half hour feeding the Meerkats, allowing them to run all over us, one even decided to sit on my head for a while! The keepers are knowledgable and informative, and after our Meerkat encounter, we were shown around an area of the zoo which was not open to the public at that time, and learned so much about owls. It was a brilliant day out and I can thoroughly recommend it.

Amazing experience

I bought the meerkat experience for my dad for his 50th birthday, we had such a great day and couldn't believe how close we were alllowed to get to them. I didn't think the meerkats would actually sit or climb onto us but they did! The person who led our experience was very knowledgeable about the meerkats and you could see there was a good bond with her and the meerkats. You could see the animals were very looked after and the enclosure was very clean and meerkats are well fed. The whole experience was so much more than I expected! Thank you so much!

Great Experience with knowledgeable Staff

I took my friend to the Meerkat experience in Ely, Cambridgeshire for her Christmas present. It was a wonderful afternoon. The meerkats were enthralling each with their own personalities. The staff were extremely knowledgeable not only about the meerkats but about the other reptiles they had. I would have no qualms about recommending this to others. In fact I hope to take my older grandchildren in the New Year.

Great day out

I had a brilliant day out at Shaldon Zoo doing a Meet the Meerkat experience. We arrived a bit early so we could have a look round the rest of the Zoo first. It is a lovely little place, with animals like capuchins, slow loris, tamarins and more. The actual experience was great. We met up with the Keeper and we were taken into the Meerkat enclosure, where we were given a bowl of food and we sat down on a couple of logs. The Meerkats came straight over and were jumping up on our laps and scrabbling for the food. It was brilliant. My husband had about 3 on him at one point. It lasted probably about 25mins. All the staff we met were so friendly and helpful. It was a really lovely day out. I would definately like to go back.

Great place friendly staff

We finally got around to booking our meercat experience. Lovely to be with the animals in their enclosure and feed them too. We were shown around the reptile enclosures too and had the opportunity to handle the snakes as well.
