Your Meerkat Experience - What to expect
Your Meet The Meerkats Experience will be a special event! To make sure you know what to bring and to expect we have listed a few important points below:
Clothing: Wear clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty. The Meerkats are likely to use you as a climbing frame!
Arrival Time: You should aim to arrive at least 15 minutes before your session is due to start.
Introduction: Brief introduction, including a health and safety talk.
Meet The Meerkats: You will be invited to enter the meerkat enclosure. You will spend a full 30 minutes watching them feed, play and perform natural behaviours. You will be under the close supervision of their keeper which allows plenty of opportunity to ask questions and find out all you want about the meerkats.
Spectators: While watching from the sidelines, you will be able to take pictures throughout the experience. Please note that flash photography is not permitted.
