The encounter will last approximately 30 minutes and the price includes zoo admission for the participant. Available to anyone aged 6+. Complimentary drink given.

Please note that at no stage do you go in the enclosure with the meerkats, you will be feeding them live invertebrates and we only run this experience once a day.
