Fun Fact
A meerkat has the ability to dig through a quantity of sand equal to its own weight in just seconds. Digging is done to create burrows, to get food and also to create dust clouds to distract predators

Under the current Government roadmap we are planning on reopening the week commencing the 12th of April for Zoo Tours and Meerkat Encounters. All other activities will resume from the 17th of May.

From the 12th - 18th of April we will have roadworks going on along the main drive. Please enter using the Honey Lane entrance if you have booked a date during that period. For directions click here.
