Adopt a meerkat

What do you buy the person who has everything? Simples…a meerkat adoption!

If you know someone that’s mad about meerkats and absolutely adore their antics then our meerkat adoption gift pack could be exactly what you’re looking for.

***Please note the last posting day for adoptions to be delivered in time for Christmas is 18 December 2019***

Our ‘adopt a meerkat’ pack makes the perfect gift, costs a one-off payment of £29 and includes:

  1. An adoption certificate
  2. A meerkat fact sheet
  3. A meerkat cuddly toy
  4. Your name displayed on a thank you board at the meerkat enclosure

If you’d like to include an entrance ticket to Folly Farm in your meerkat adoption gift pack the price is just £39 and includes all of the above plus an entrance ticket for one person (a saving of £6.50 on a standard adult day entry ticket).

How do I adopt a meerkat?

To adopt a meerkat just click through to the meerkat adoption page and choose if you’d like to adopt with, or without, an entrance ticket included.  You can adopt a meerkat for yourself or for someone special and we’ll also send a special gift message along with your cuddly meerkat toy in your adoption pack.

Your meerkat adoption will last for 12 months and 10% of the profit will help raise money for our conservation partners. So you’ll feel great about giving this gift too.

Schools and group organisations can also purchase our adoption packages. Please call the office on 01834 812731 to make arrangements.

Meerkat adoption reviews

"My daughter adopted a Meerkat after saving all her pocket money. She loves the toy Meerkat and it sleeps in her bed every night. She was thrilled to see her name outside the enclosure and is proud of spending her money in this way. Hoping to visit again soon."

Libby Gudge-Smith, Treforest, 5 out of 5, 20 February 2018

"I bought this for my son for Christmas, he loves the meerkats when we visit Folly Farm. He was so excited and was delighted with his soft toy. We are looking forwarding to a visit at Easter time to see his name on the board."

Rhian Howells, Swansea, 5 out of 5, 25 February 2018

"My son absolutely adores his meerkat teddy and is so pleased that his name is on a board. He has called him Amir Khan! We thoroughly enjoyed our visit as usual and will be back again soon to visit Amir and friends. Thanks."
