Slender Tailed Meerkat (Suricata suricata)
Distribution: Southern Africa including Angola, Namibia and South Africa.
Status: Least concern
Our Meerkat enclosure, 'Suricata Sands' was opened in style on 24th May 2009 by Michaela Strachan, animal enthusiast and TV presenter.
The 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.
Indoors there is a warm area for the meerkats to keep dry on those rainy days, with undercover viewing for our visitors too!
We have had a high number of healthy births within our meerkat mob resulting in a very successful breeding group.
See how many meerkats you can find on your next visit!
