Meet the Meerkats

Meerkat pups

Fancy getting up close and personal with the cheekiest mob in town? Tilgate Nature Centre offers Meet the Meerkat experiences, available to anyone aged eight-years-old plus.

What does the experience involve?

During Meet the Meerkats you will feed the mob some tasty treats and speak to a keeper all about their care, welfare and mischievousness! Our meerkats are a friendly bunch and will happily sit on your lap during the experience – they often venture up to the head and shoulders too!

Due to the nature of the experience Meet the Meerkats takes place inside the meerkat enclosure. This involves climbing two steps and walking up a small but steep slope. The ground is a sand-based substrate and is therefore not suitable for wheelchair users. Please bear this in mind when making your booking.

How much does it cost?
