We booked a Meerkat adventure and were given clear and unmistakable instructions about where to meet up the following morning at 5 AM. That night it rained and in the morning it was just about dry. After a few minutes we found the meeting point,...More

This was an absolutely amazing experience. We were lucky that the weather was perfect I see some of the reviews are critical but you can’t guarantee the performance of wild animals. The meerkats are unbelievably cute. The guides extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the animals....More

We included Oudtshoorn on our itinerary for South Africa purely for the meerkat adventure trip. We were not disappointed. The early start is absolutely worth it and watching the sunrise as you wait for the meerkats is wonderful. We arrived at the meeting point at...More

This was an excellent experience from start to finish. 5am is definitely an early start whilst on holiday but it is 100% worth it. Watching the meerkats is enchanting. They slowly emerge from their burrows and then begin their morning ritual of warming up in...More
