MeEt tHe MeErKaTs
Our Meet the Meerkats experience offers you the chance to get up close to these highly sociable and fascinating creatures whilst giving them some of their favourite snacks, making your day at the HCC a truly special one!
After meeting your keeper and a quick briefing, you will head over to our meerkat enclosure where you will spend time with our meerkats and ask any burning questions!
It is truly an experience to remember whether for you or a gift for a loved one! Not only that, you’re helping us continue our work!
