Things to Do

Daily " Walking Safaris "  timetableThere's lots to do at the Isle of Wight Zoo. Naturally you can look at our animals, but we also want you to have the chance to discover a bit more about them - and have fun doing it why not join our friendly and knowlegable " Animologists " on an extraordinary and exciting " Walking Safari "  We have activities and facilities for every age group, all aimed at making your day as enjoyable as possible.

Meet the Meerkats

  • Daily meerkat encounters are now open at 'Suricata Lodge’! If you fancy the opportunity to be used as a human termite mound by our friendly mob of meerkats then why not treat yourself or your children to an encounter in our specially designed undercover area? Tickets are sold on the day on a first-come-first-served basis.
                 Buy your meerkat encounter tickets at the main reception. 

Hands on Wildlife Encounters

For a truly special experience you can pre-book a close-up encounter with some of our most impressive animals, or even spend the day as a zookeeper.
