Daily Encounters

If you want to get a little closer to our animals, our Daily Encounters will be perfect for you!

Tickets are limited for animal welfare reason so make sure you get yours early. 

Meerkat Encounter

£15 per person, minimum age 8 years.

Daily at 15.30pm

Daily meerkat encounters are now open at 'Suricata Lodge’! If you fancy the opportunity to be used as a human termite mound by our friendly mob of meerkats then why not treat yourself or your children to an encounter in our specially designed undercover area? Tickets are sold on the day on a first-come-first-served basis.

Children participating in the encounter will be required to have a guardian nearby.

It is advisable to bring

closed-toe shoes and clothing to cover your arms and legs.
