Overview

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.

Bring your cameras to capture plenty of memorable moments!

Animal Experience in Stretham

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!

Awesome place to visit
I would highly recommend the animal experience near Ely. It was a person experience with the meerkat. Better than I could have imagined. Staff were fantastic kind informative, and very obliging. Already looking to book again with other family members

I ordered this over a week ago. It still hasn’t turned up….. Wondering if this is a scam or not.

Just what we expected
After seeing photos and reading reviews, we knew that this would be a great experience. The meerkats are so cute. Not scary at all. They are well loved and looked after. We also got to see and hold more animals. Great trip out
