Corporate Adoptions

With almost 400,000 visitors a year a corporate meerkat adoption would give your company the unique opportunity to advertise your services or products on a plaque alongside other current adopters and will show your support of Drusillas and the valuable conservation work we undertake. We have two corporate adoption schemes which start from £100 and include a minimum of four complimentary entry tickets. Please email us at [email protected] for more details.

About Drusillas Meerkats:

A happy troop of meerkats lives at Drusillas Park. You’ll be able to easily spot them standing on their back legs keeping lookout over the zoo. Meerkats are a member of the mongoose family, with long front claws for digging burrows and slender tails to help them balance whilst standing upright. This alert posture helps meerkats warm their bellies after sleeping on the cold desert floor. Meerkats are very social animals and are always running up to check on our visitors! Don’t delay, sponsor a meerkat today! 


Meerkat adoption packages are available from £45. Please click the link for more details on price and a full list of Meerkats to Adopt.
