We really like this Kids Animal Experiences Experience within easy reach of Telford, Shropshire.
Famous for popping up on their hind legs in eager expectance, meerkats are inquisitive, mischievous animals who are much more than just car insurance mascots! Meet the meerkats face to face and shake paws at a small award-winning animal sanctuary, and get to know more about these cute exotics from inside their enclosure. Participate in feeding the meerkats their favourite foods, and see how fast their attention is grabbed once they’ve smelled or seen treats, then get a chance to cuddle them, be climbed on, and take some absolutely incredible photographs. Supervised all the way through by an expert meerkat keeper, discover all about their good (and bad!) habits, their individual personalities and what makes them tick. Animal lovers will go wild!
