Come behind the scenes and mingle with our most inquisitive residents, our meerkats!

Meerkats are highly sociable and very inquisitive by nature. It is important for our zookeepers to ensure our meerkat mob is provided new opportunities to keep them mentally and physically stimulated.

This can be achieved in many different ways including new and exciting enrichment items to explore, and human interaction!

With a passion for food and a love for exploring new things, get up close and personal while you hand feed our meerkats and learn from our dedicated zookeepers about the intricate social life of this globally iconic species.

Be sure to get in fast to secure your booking to create memories to last a lifetime!

Animal experiences are dependent on animal welfare and may be cancelled in the event of extreme weather conditions or other events that may adversely affect our animals’ health and/or wellbeing. 

Symbio Wildlife Park considers our animals’ welfare a priority during animal experiences and as such our staff reserve the right to refuse any person to participate in the animal encounter for reasons including health, safety, or other events that may adversely affect our animals’ health and/or wellbeing. Participants may be asked to cease the encounter at any time for whatever reason at the discretion of our staff.

We ask that participants be mindful that they will be entering the home of our animals, and understand that the animals’ participation is their own choice and their wishes will always take priority. The behavior of the animals or the outcome/level of interaction is not guaranteed under any circumstances.

Please remember that all animals are capable of exercising their natural instincts. Do not under any circumstances attempt to roughly handle the animal. Contact with animals will be under the handler’s direction – please do not touch the animal’s head, face or any other body parts unless directed to by the animal handler.
