    This was the most amazing experience ever, my 9yo chose the Meekat Encounter for her birthday and loved every minute of it, we can’t thank Halls Gap Zoo enough and will be back in December for the Dingo Experience

    We absolutely had an amazing time feeding these gorgeous Meerkats! We waited til our youngest was old enough to enjoy the Encounter and was well worth the wait. Wish we could give it 100 stars!!! Photos that the zoo provide are a lovely addition to this wonderful activity. HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT 😀
