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

£10.00 per person, minimum age 8 years.

Daily at 13.45pm

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.


Lemur Encounters

This encounter takes place inside the lemur enclosure. You will help to feed our enchanting lemurs and they may even climb up onto your shoulder! Our friendly staff will tell you all about our lemurs and will explain how we are helping to protect their endangered wild cousins in Madagascar.
This activity takes place at 12 noon each day and costs £10.00 per person. Minimum age 8 years.
You can purchase your ticket on the day, in the Zoo Shop.
