What to expect during your day: Upon arrival at Tapnell Farm Park you will have a quick health and safety briefing before heading out into the Farm with your experienced keeper host, who will be looking after you throughout your exciting experience.

Our Keeper host will take you through the Wallaby walkabout to introduce you to some of our mob of wallabies, then you will go along to our mischievous Meerkat enclosure where you will have the opportunity to feed our cheeky pair of meerkats, Doto and Kolo (as well as their two new adorable pups!) some of their favourite treats.
