We arrived to a warm and friendly welcome, received a health and safety briefing, and were then escorted to our first part of the experience - a close encounter with wild meerkats as they took food and jumped on our laps as we sat within the enclosure, together with two keepers. Then we were taken to an open enclosure to... More

Lovely to see animals and being able to help with feeding etc. Expected it to be abit more polished for price being charged to enter over 2's charged the same as an adult?

I brought the meerkat experience for my husband as part of a discount on wowcher. ️ After booking a date, I had to change it which was done without any problems. Thank you. We will definitely be back in the future as it, it is such a lovely place. A must for animal lovers! So many to see and clearly... More

A birthday treat for my wife who took our 8year old daughter. They loved everything about the experience. To be able to get so close to wild animals is not something you get to do every day that and the friendly and informative staff helped to make it a very enjoyable trip.

Had a fantastic time, feeding and cuddling the meerkats. Staff really friendly and gave lots of information about the meerkats. Would highly recommend.

bought the Meerkat experience as a gift for my partner through Amazon, and it was an excellent day and a memorable experience. The staff were great, very knowledgeable, and the meerkats were wonderful up close and personal, snuggling into our jackets and chatering away between mouthfuls of mealworms and fruit! We also said hello to the birds and the cervals,... More

Treated my wife and daughter to the Wild Cat Experience. They enjoyed it immensely and would thoroughly recommend it. The staff were very friendly and extremely knowledgable, and as for the animals themselves - they were a delight.

Took my mum for a special day out for her 70th birthday. Got the deal though Amazon local which was good value for money. We really enjoyed meeting Shaka the caracal. He was very playful and I was very happy to get a lap cuddle, albeit not for long. We loved feeding the lemurs. They were so gentle and one... More

We had an hour booked for 4 of us with the Meetkats, it was really good, would recommend it to anybody. Had a fantastic afternoon, just wished we had gone earlier so we could have spent more time on the farm. Will definately be visiting in the Summer to spend the day there. Thanks everyone...

I took 2 12 year-old boys to this and have to say I was slightly disappointed. I think I expected more of a "zoo-keeper" role rather than In animal handler. The boys enjoyed it, although we were all very cold sitting with the meerkats for an hour. Our guide was very knowledgeable but even she struggled to fill the gaps... More
