Hoo Farm is mors than just a farm. Yes it has pigs, sheep, cows etc but it also has more exotic animals including Serval, Caracal, Meercats and more. The half day animal keeper is brilliant. Feeding the lemurs (super soft and so gentle), stroking the Servals (real fusspots), handling the Meercats (so cute and inquisitive), handling an Owl (so pretty),... More

My partner and I went for a Lemur, Meerkat and Serval experience on 26th June after seeing some great pictures on a friends facebook page. Unfortunately when we got there it was absolutely chucking it down but many of the experiences are under cover. The two meerkats were absolutely brilliant. One just went to sleep deep in my partners hoodie... More

I visited this as a family of 3 and have to say was very disappointed. At £10 per person there are parts of this farm which are dreadful. The first fail is the stuffed toys for sale by admissions. These are overpriced (£18.50 for a small toy) and on the way in, every parents nightmare The wallaby walk is unsuitable... More

We visited Hoo Farm recently for a Lemur experience having previously taken part in a meerekat experience earlier in the year. The keeper leading the experience was very knowledgeable and had a genuine passion and love for the animals. Would definitely recommend :-)

Visited Hoo Farm as a present from our daughter, what a great time we had. The meerkat experience was so good I would not be able to do it justice in this review, the keeper was lovely and informative and adored the animals which all appeared to be healthy and well looked after. Would say this is well worth a... More
