Meet The Meerkats 

(Suitable for ages 6+)


Are you ready for a little meerkat mischief? Help our animal team put out enrichment and delicious, squirmy mealworms for our enthusiastic Meerkats - then stand by as the mayhem ensues!



What you need to know:


  • Meerkats are curious and friendly, so Meet the Meerkats is ideal for even the smallest of hobblers, at age 6+!
  • The experience lasts 15 - 20 minutes
  • Please bring wellies or sturdy footwear! Participants will be taken into the meerkat enclosure, so footwear suited to muck and mud is required.
  • You are required to wear long trousers (no skirts or shorts) to keep you legs safe from curious little claws!
  • Meet the keepers! Q&A with the meerkat caretakers will be available throughout the session, along with plenty of educational facts
  • Bring your camera! There will be plenty of great photo opportunities...
