Our meerkat enclosure offers the meerkats a large area with extensive areas to burrow and several large logs so the meerkats can climb and keep watch over their new home.

They also have an indoor area which is warm for those chilly days and keep them dry on rainy days. Visitors can also view this undercover area.

A group of meerkats, is called a “mob” or a “gang” and are extremely social animals, who are fond of mutual grooming as well as wrestling and playing with one another. See how many meerkats you can find on your next visit.
