The cheeky meerkat mob at Rockhampton Zoo is waiting to have an encounter with you.

To make your zoo visit extra special, you could be lucky enough to have an up-close encounter with the latest members of Rockhampton Zoo: the meerkat mob. You have seen them on Meerkat Manor, and laughed with Timon from the Lion King. Now you can be part of this lovable family by joining a close encounter, while at the same time learning all about these cheeky characters. Get up close with our family of meerkats and get ready to entertain your friends with stories of your amazing experience. Feed our meerkat family during a private keeper talk about meerkats.

Experience duration: approximately 25 minutes (including collection and safety brief)

  • Participants are to present to the ticket booth 15 minutes prior to their encounter time.  Parking is limited in school holidays so please ensure you allow sufficient time as the encounter will continue at the scheduled time.
  • There is a maximum of 4 participants per animal encounter.
  • Participants must be at least eight years old.  Participants under the age of 15 must be accompanied by an adult (who is also a paying participant). Rockhampton Zoo reserves the right to request proof of age.
  • When visiting the zoo, you must comply with all Queensland Government COVID-19 requirements.
  • Participants must wear flat and enclosed shoes.  Participants who arrive at the animal encounter without flat, enclosed shoes will not be permitted to participate in the encounter and will not be entitled to reschedule or a refund.
  • It is recommended that participants wear clothing which covers their arms and shoulders as the animals may wish to sit/perch on them resulting in scratches if not protected.  
  • Rockhampton Regional Council and Rockhampton Zoo do not take any responsibility for any injuries or illnesses sustained by any of the participants, whether caused as a result of the animal encounter or as a result of being in the animal enclosure.
