The mischievous little creatures are seemingly everywhere these days, and we just can't get enough of them! If you're looking for the perfect experience gift for an animal lover, you really needn't look any further - this meet and greet the meerkats experience in Oxford allows you to get up close and personal with some truly fascinating critters, for a full half hour.
Upon arriving at the Oxford-based wildlife and bird of prey centre, you'll be warmly welcomed by your keeper and given a brief safety talk, before preparing some tasty treats for your new friends. You'll then enter the enclosure, and be introduced to Ginger and Tom, the centre's resident meerkats. Armed with your own feeding bowl, you'll soon be closely aquainted with the cheeky pair and they'll be helping themselves to snacks from your lap. For half an hour, you'll be able to observe first hand, the unique behaviors that make these animals so recognisable. Your knowledgeable keeper will be able to provide you with some interesting insights into their natural habitats and behaviours, and will be happy to answer any questions you may have. And as if this immersive hands-on wildlife experience was not enough, you'll also receive free entry to the entire birds of prey centre, where you can spend the remainder of the day admiring the power and grace of some of Britain's best loved raptors - the flying displays are sure to keep you busy for the rest of the afternoon.

Average rating: 4 stars out of 5
I enjoyed the experience very much. The keeper was very knowledgeable and fully explained the live style of the meerkats. It was great fun feeding the meerkats by hand. It was also very entertaining for my young grandson. The added bonus was the bird of prey display.
Very good well organised experience. Managed to feed the family of four Meerkats. They were well behaved but they do sit on your lap so prepare for some dirty trousers when you leave!
It was really well organised and James looked after us very well. The falconry centre is very well cared for and the birds are magnificent to see so close up. The meerkat experience was very special and Tom and Ginger are little stars. Very well behaved and enjoyed us being in their home. It's an exceptaionally good animal encounter and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The farm is a wonderful set up. Great morning out.
