Meerkat Experience
30 August 2023
Having bought a meerkat experience as a gift for my brother and his girlfriend and seen photographs of them with meerkats climbing all over them, I was really excited to receive the same gift in return for myself and my young son. However, the location I chose for our experience did not allow handling of the meerkats - it was a much smaller zoo with only five meerkats and, although an enjoyable and informative experience, we were disappointed with the lack of contact. I respect the zoo and their reasons for this, but it would have been helpful if this information was included in the experience description, as I didn't think to ask beforehand - I might then have chosen a different location and had a more hands-on experience.
