Definitely recommend this. My son and his friend loved their Meerkat experience, and were delighted at how interactive the meerkats were, climbing all over them and they are so inquisitive. The place looks unassuming from the road but has an excellent set up, clean and well managed with lots of reptiles and other animals to see too. The boys also got to hold a chameleon. Karen who was our contact was very knowledgable and made the whole experience really personal. The tiny 4 week old babies were adorable!

such a lovely experience. The meerkats are gorgeous and so friendly, and the staff so knowledgeable. I would love to go back for some of the other experiences.

If you want to get really up close to the animals then this is for you. I’ve done many Meekat experiences at big zoos and also smaller sanctuaries but The Animal Experience is by far the best I have ever had (so much so I’ve repeated the same experience 3 times now). They really encourage complete interaction and the animals are so tame and friendly. The staff are very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly too. I can’t rate it highly enough.

Great day out very informative meerkats were great as were all the other animals there except the spiders but that’s a personal thing I just don’t like them

It is very shoddy and has very basic facilities for visitors. It was very disappointing, however my 10 year old grandson and his friend enjoyed it.
