Here is one of our most popular "Meet & Greet" experiences; meerkats where along with one of our host keepers you can get really close to the animals and help feed them. These "Meet & Greet" experiences are also available with our singing dogs, cheetah, reptiles/tortoises & tapir. They are all about one hour in duration and are your own personal experience. Each participant has free entry to the zoo on the day, a free hot drink at the introduction and will get a commemorative certificate !
All our meet and greet experiences are on a one to one basis with you and or your family, you will not share your experience with anyone else.
Minimum ages may apply for health & safety compliance.
Please note: The booking payment is non refundable. The agreed date can not be changed in the last 7 days prior to the experience.
Meerkats are adorable! Meerkat Manor, Walt Disney's the Lion King and Compare the Meerkat.com have really created an interest in this lively little mongoose. What are they really like? Why not come and find out! The meerkat experience is about an hour in duration and is just a little bit special!
The experience can only happen on certain days of the week and has to be pre-booked. An afternoon experience beginning at 3.15 pm can be booked in advance. Only the one experience will run on any one day. You will get a chance to prepare food, feed our colony and provide environmental enrichment, learn about our meerkats and the species. Then to finish, meet and greet one of the zoo's hand reared meerkats, "Seemples or Rascal" on your own, on a one to one basis along with your accompanying keeper!
For Health & Safety reasons we can not offer this experience to any body under 8 years of age and any children doing the experience must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
