There is something uniquely appealing about meerkats which has seen them become an international favourite all over the world. With their inquisitive natures, their complex social networks and their decidedly individual personalities, the chance to get close to these amazing creatures is one that any couple of animal-lovers will be thrilled by.

For most people, just seeing a group of meerkats, known as a ‘mob’, ‘gang’ or ‘clan’, is enjoyable enough, but this experience is a chance for the lucky pair to actually let some of these cute critters climb on them and even hand-feed them which is sure to make this an experience that they will never forget.

On arrival, the meerkat enclosure is the first port of call for your meerkat encounter where the meerkats’ keepers will provide some insight into what to expect from these fascinating animals, answer any questions about the meerkats themselves and be on hand during the encounter. They will provide food for the meerkats and provide insider information on which are the most sociable compared to those who are more shy and retiring. Anyone who loves animals will adore this meerkat experience for two.

What did you get up to?
My Auntie and I visited the Animal Experience in Stretham, where we met the most adorable family of meerkats; all with names inspired by Toy Story - Jessie, Woody, Slinky & Rex!
Once inside the meerkat enclosure, it wasn't very long before the meerkats started jumping up onto our laps. They loved being stroked and one meerkat even wanted to have their belly rubbed! We also got to feed them and whilst meerkats may be small, their characters exceed their size!
Mitch (experience provider) was very knowledgeable, and it was interesting to find out more about these adorable animals.
After our meerkat encounter, we were taken around the rest of the zoo. We saw baby sugar gliders, a snowy owl just like Harry Potter's Hedwig, chinchillas, chameleons, pythons, tarantulas (not my personal favourite) and more! We both got to hold a lizard too!

What did you enjoy the most?
Feeding the meerkats was my favourite part; when Mitch said they don't like to share their food he wasn't joking! It was fascinating to see how meerkats compete for food and hearing them communicate using different voices.
Sharing this experience with my Auntie was another highlight - she's always been a massive animal-lover; she loved the meerkats so much she wanted to take one home with her, especially the meerkat who wanted a belly rub!
Also, holding a lizard felt very surreal as I've never been completely fearless around animals, but it felt amazing to step outside of my comfort zone!
Top Tip
1. Hold on tight to the feeding pot as the meerkats do not like to share food and they can knock this out of your hands! 2. Make sure you wear clothes that you don't mind meerkats jumping on to! 3. Enjoy seeing all the other animals at the zoo too!

Trying to book this has been a nightmare. Everydate that was offered to me which I picked was later confirmed taken simply because the company took 2 or more days to reply to my emails. Then they said the next available spaces were over a month after she. I was originally offered. I am currently trying to get a refund but i doubt they will even bother since it took them so long to reply to my messages about booking a slot. Terrible communication and attitude.

Really pleased with this gift - bought it twice as it is perfect for two people who are turning 60 and have most things they want.
