Meet the Meerkats


  • An amazing up close and personal experience with our cheeky family of meerkats
  • Feed the meerkats in their enclosure and watch as they forage for dinner
  • Learn about meerkat behaviour and family life and hear stories of the adventures of Xena, Twix and Twirl.

This is a unique experience and will last 20 minutes. During that time you’ll meet one of our keepers and enter the meerkat enclosure with them.

There will be photo opportunities as you take a seat and scatter feed the meerkats their bugs. Our meerkats are very inquisitive so will be interested to investigate anything or anybody new entering their enclosure! Please note you are feeding them live invertebrates. We cannot guarantee that they will climb on to your lap like the lucky person in this photo!

Demand is high and places are strictly limited, so you’re advised to book well in advance to avoid disappointment. This experience has a fixed start time of 2pm and the minimum age for participants is 8 years. Children age 8 to 15 must be accompanied into the enclosure by a paying adult.

Please wear suitable clothes and footwear that you don’t mind possibly getting dirty.

Price also includes free access to the rest of the zoo.

This Experience can be bought for up to 2 people at any one time.
