Mingle with our mischievous mob of meerkats
Mingle with our inquisitive Meerkat mob in this fun and interactive experience. Join a dedicated keeper in our Meerkats’ exhibit, get up close to these adorable animals as they run over your lap in search of tasty mealworm treats.
If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about these fascinating creatures, why not do it over breakfast – Meerkat style!
Our Meerkat group is very social and always has one or two sentries on duty keeping watch over the rest of the group. Meerkats by nature are very inquisitive and enjoy exploring new things, especially enrichment items designed to keep the group physically and mentally stimulated. And what better form of enrichment than human visitors with tasty treats!
Please note the minimum age for this experience is 8 years.
Highlights of this experience
- Find yourself in the middle of our Meerkat mob
- Feel the weight of these adorable animals as they jump onto your lap to eat wriggly mealworms
Meerkats have a unique ability to keep dirt out of their ears while they burrow into the ground – they can shut them! What’s more? The dark bands around their eyes act like a pair of sunglasses, helping to reduce glare from the sun.
