Brief Animal Encounter
Mix it with our inquisitive meerkat mob in a unique and fun interactive experience. You’ll enjoy time in their exhibit with a keeper mingling with these playful creatures. Enjoy great photographic opportunities as the meerkats interact with you for some tasty treats. Please note the cost of Meerkat Encounter does not include admission to the Zoo.
Unfortunately, this experience isn’t wheelchair accessible and surfaces are uneven. Not suitable for pregnant women. Participants will need to be able to stand up from the seated position so reasonable mobility is required. Not suitable for those with nut or egg allergies as peanuts and eggs are used during the encounter. Skirts are not permitted.
Please note that all animal experiences require enclosed footwear.
