Nestled away in 32 acres of woodland and paddocks in the heart of rural Shropshire, Hoo Farm Animal Kingdom is a small family run zoo located on the outskirts of Telford. With animals such as meerkats, lemurs, snakes and owls and even African wildcats, the zoo is a fantastic day out for people of all ages.
Upon arrival you will be greeted by a friendly member of the Hoo Farm team, who will allow you to get up close and personal to three magnificent African animals. The hour long experience will begin with meeting and handling Kovu or Uuka, the zoo’s hand reared meerkats who both love human attention and will happily snuggle up close to you, and might even fall asleep on those who are the comfiest.
Next you’ll meet the friendly troop of ring-tailes lemurs, which you will be able to hand feed.
This incredible experience ends with Duma and Zeus, the servals. A close relative of the cheetah, servals can reach speeds of up to 50 mph and can jump 9-feet high, but don't worry, both Duma and Zeus love human companionship and attention!
