Up close with Servals, racoon dogs and foxes was a great experience, the servals were so friendly and loved being fussed, the racoon dogs had fruit off us and the foxes were really tame and came right up to us, one even tried to mark us as his territory which was funny. Keeper was very knowledgeable about all the animals... More

This was bought for my daughter as a birthday treat, and we both thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Not only did we get to handle a wide range of well cared for animals, including meerkats, lemurs, servals, snakes and owls, but we also learned a great deal from the very knowledgeable guide who was able to answer all of our many...

Better than expected. First half hour hand feeding the wilder meerkats and then Half hour holding the two tame ones. The keeper was very knowledgable and answered all out questions. We then went for a walk round the rest of the animals which we enjoyed. Highly recommend this experience

We thoroughly enjoyed this one hour experience - 30 minutes holding and cuddling the meerkats and 30 minutes feeding them. Both keepers were very knowledgeable and took photos of us together with the meerkats. We took the third time slot, 3-4pm, so the meerkats had had plenty of cuddles and food already so were a bit more fussy in what... More

We went for the meerkat experience 26/9/15. We got a deal on Groupon for fraction the price it is via hoo farms website. The hour we had with them went so fast! But it was worth it. You got to cuddle the meerkats and play with them. Not only that the keeper we had on the day was really informative... More

Great welcome when we entered the park, we got there a little early for our experience so they let us have a look around the park whilst we waited. We were also very happy that it was free parking! We were greeted by our animal keeper (Becky) and even though some people hadn't turned up she took us into the... More

Keeper very knowledgable but site looks rather run down. Quite a range of different animals to see and plenty of places to wash hands
