Having a great day out with meerkats couldn’t be more “simples” with this experience. With the aid of an expert handler you will enter the meerkat cage with their lunch! You will instantly become their best friend as soon as they get a sniff. They will come running and climb all over you looking for their tasty treats. Then it’s time to feed them so watch as they happily take directly from your bare hands. You will then be able to sit back and watch them run and play together with their stomachs nice and full courtesy of you! The feeding begins at 3.30pm, but this doesn’t mean you can’t explore Paradise Wildlife Park for the day - there are plenty of other fascinating animals and attractions to see and this voucher includes your entrance fee to the park. All spectators will need to purchase their own admission tickets when they enter the park.
What's included?
  • Entrance to Paradise Wildlife Park for the day for one person
  • The chance to hand feed the Meerkats with the help of an experienced keeper
Any restrictions?
  • Your voucher is valid for 10 months for one person
  • The minimum age for this experience is 10 years old
  • Spectators will need to purchase admission when they arrive at the park
  • You will need to ensure that your tetanus inoculations are up to date before you arrive at the park. We recommend you contact your GP should you not be sure
What do I need to know?
  • Although feeding time is 3.30pm, your voucher includes admission to Paradise Wildlife Park so you are welcome to spend the whole day enjoying the attractions
  • As the meerkats will climb on you, it is advised to wear older clothing

After having a look around the park on a cold day we made our way to the Discovery Centre where I was introduced to the keeper, Connor. He briefed me about how to get the most out of the experience. There were 5 very friendly meerkats. After finishing their food they turned their attention to me! They loved being stroked but most of all crawling inside my jacket for a snuggle. I didn't stop smiling and laughing the entire time and for a long time afterwards. A magical experience.

We took my daughter to feed the meercats for her 14th birthday present and had a great afternoon. She loved being in their enclosure and the meercat keeper was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about these delightful litle creatures.My daughter loved her t shirt and the refreshments prior the experience were very yummy. Thank you to everyone at Paradise Park for a making her birthday a special day.

Location: Essex Age: 55-64 Bought For Wife Occasion: Christmas
Having already collected all of the Toy MeerKats this was on the face of it going to be a little bit boring. However it was absolutely perfect and I would not hesitate to go back again and again. The Park staff were polite helpful attentive and exceedingly informative and the whole experience was brilliant

Location: Kent Age: 35-44 Bought For Daughter Occasion: Birthday
We met with the keeper at the Discovery center, she then took us to one of the meerkat enclosures, I was greeted by 3 meerkats and encouraged to sit down with the food provided. I was allowed to stroke all of them, of which they were really friendly; the last 10 mins were amazing as one them sat on my lap and allowed me to cuddle it. I was given a certificate and a t-shirt as part of my gift. Staff were really friendly and helpful
What would you improve for next time? perhaps include some sort of package for family that are going with you, half price tickets, etc..

Not only were the meerkats very friendly and happy to climb all over me, have their backs scratched and pose for photos, Amy, their handler, was very knowledgeable and answered all my questions. The enclosure where the experience took place was away from the main public areas so it was really special and I would recommend it if you love animals.

Meerkats & Cuddles

Location: Oxfordshire Age: 45-54 Bought For Daughter Occasion: Birthday
After refreshments I met the Keeper who took me to the enclosure. All I could hear on arrival was scratching at the inner door and as it opened I was greeted by three lovely little Meerkats. The keeper introduced me to the group as they are around my feet and then within seconds if sitting down with the half filled bowl I was joined by Captain who polished of the bowls contents! After all had finished eating Leo went back to watch out duty while Captain enjoyed endless tummy tickles as did her sister when Captain allowed this. The time went really quickly but many photos taken by both the keeper and my guests. Staff were super friendly throughout. Only regret we didn't make a whole day out of it as the other animals at the park were all well worth a visit

What would you improve for next time? It would have been nice to receive my certificate and t shirt after the event and spend a full 30 minutes in with the meerkats
