Meerkats are small, cat-like carnivores that are part of the mongoose and civets family. These mammals play an important role in maintaining ecological harmony in wilds of the African desert. You can spot our meerkat mob near the tapir enclosure.
 

How do I adopt a meerkat?

First choose the adoption package you wish to purchase from the options below and then make your animal selection.

Adoptions apply to the species rather than individual animals. This is because our animals may move to other zoos as part of breeding programmes.
