Come along and meet some of our most popular residents, our lively mob of Meerkats. Their inquisitive nature makes them really fun to watch and you can even treat them to a pot of mealworms which available to purchase from the Admissions Kiosk or Jungle Gift Shop.
The enclosure is also home to two spectacular African Crested Porcupines; Mrs. Milligan and Kerplunk. They are the largest and heaviest of all African rodents.
Meerkat Mansion was purpose-built to allow the Meerkats to behave as naturally as possible, with lots of places to dig amongst sand and rocks, and climb around. The large, round exhibit, is set below ground level to allow you an amazing viewing experience and also includes large boulders which the Meerkats use as lookout points - these make for brilliant photo opportunities!
In cold or wet weather, the Meerkats sometimes stay cosy in their underground den, which is viewable through windows, and may often be seen sunbathing under the heat lamp.
