Description

Join an expert zookeeper inside one of Paradise Wildlife Park's enclosures to meet the meerkats for this unique animal experience. Equipped with your own feeding bowl you'll feed the meerkats by hand, or rather they'll help themselves whilst scrambling all over you! Experiencing first hand the habitat and feeding habits of these fascinating creatures is hilarious and not to be missed.

This a great opportunity to get close to these fascinating animals. You will enter their enclosure with the keeper at feeding time and assist in feeding them - you will find that they are extremely friendly and curious and they will treat you like a human climbing frame!

Included in the experience is a presentation certificate and souvenir t-shirt, but don’t forget to bring your camera to capture your new friends on film!

Brilliant Experience!

Our kids bought this for us and we had a great time. The staff were very knowledgeable and we spent ages with the meerkats. Our kids came in with us and took photos and videos for memories of a fantastic day.

Well worth doing.

I was bought this for my birthday and took my elderly mother. Staff were very accommodating as her mobility isn't the best. We first went into the enclosure with the 2 hand reared meerkats and had lots of fussing. Then into an indoor enclosure where my mother could sit and feed a mob of them. Staff were very informative and answered all our questions. I would definitely like to go again.

Enchanting experience

I received this experience as a Christmas present & it was a lovely surprise gift. The whole day was great & it was brilliant being able to get up close & personal with the meerkats. The only negative point was trying to get decent photos. It would’ve been nice if they would take photos for you so you could concentrate on the animals

Really fun

We had a great time meeting the llamas and taking them for a walk. It's a lovely area and the staff made sure that we knew exactly what to do. Would highly recommend this.

Fantastic

My husband bought me a spa day but I changed it for the Meerkat experience. More my thing...I booked my day at Paradise wildlife park Broxbourne. It was BRILLIANT. The young girl that led me was so informative. I learnt things that I didn't know about Meerkas and I've watched every episode of Meerkat manor...I had a fantastic time sitting with them, feeding them and having my shoulders being used as a watchtower..The keeper had my phone so I've got loads of pictures as memories. ..You are not in big groups of people either I was on my own with them... Paradise do lots of different experiences and you only have to share if you have booked as a couple or a group. ...Its a brilliant experience ,one I want to do again and I want to try some other too

Memorable lovely experience

My husband and I were given an activity voucher as a wedding gift. We started to run out of time to use our voucher and chose the llama walk over a night away which our friends had intended. We had a really lovely time. The staff were friendly , the llamas had fun personalities and the walk was through pretty woods and beautiful hotel grounds. We were very fortunate that to top it all weather was perfect.
