WHAT IS A COMBO ENCOUNTER

Guided by an experienced member of the Animal Care Team you'll spend close-up time with both our Penguins and Meerkats! Your adventure starts with the Penguins where you'll go behind the scenes and be given an overview of our fascinating Humboldt Penguin colony - their habits and natural behaviours, where they originate, why they're threatened in the wild, etc. You'll see how we prepare their fish and then help with feeding! You'll have special time inside the enclosure - including seeing inside the caves where our Penguins nest. Some of the tamer Penguin personalities will be happy to waddle up to greet you - including Dippy who is famous on Facebook 'dippy seaview' but we advise that you do not touch them.

The second part of your adventure is Meerkat Madness! Guided by an experienced member of the Animal Care Team, you'll be given an overview of our marvellous Meerkat mob - and then have time in their enclosure, really close-up! With a bowl of Meerkat treats on your lap to tempt our little characters, we'll take photos of them feeding from the palm of your hand! Images will be downloaded onto a DVD and presented to you as a memento of your special, personal Combo Encounter!
