Thank you exotic zoo. We had a great meerkat experience. The keeper was lovely and knowledgeable. The meerkats were hilarious and me and my partner have had a brilliant time. Now trying to think which experience we'd like next!

Brilliant day out and excellent value. Kids loved it and lots to do and look at. The children are able to get really close and involved with hands on experiences with the animals.
