Upgrade your visit to Melbourne Zoo and Mix with the Meerkats!

Our knowledgeable keepers will guide you through one of our three meerkat exhibits’ whilst you engage and get to know these curious creatures.

Come get a closer view and learn about the different and varying enrichment techniques used to keep our mob healthy and promote natural behaviours.

Each encounter will be unique, allowing our keepers to let the individual animals shine and give them the choice and control on how they participate.

Your participation will help contribute to Zoos Victoria's work to fight wildlife extinction. 

Zoo entry not included. Be sure to also book your entry tickets for the same date as your Behind the Scenes experience.

This experience is currently operating with a COVIDSafe plan in place, if you’ve done this experience before, it may be a little different this time around (but no less fun!)
