Absolutely recommended it. Was a lifetimes experience with friendly and competent stuff. We waited approximately 1 hour until a family of 9 Meerkats appeared and stayed also 1 hour until they ran away to get some food. During waiting time, the guide told a lot...More

In four we have spent well 142 euros, a crazy price to see, for a few minutes, the meerkats that can be seen elsewhere for free. NOT RECOMMENDED.

Intended to do the tour. Booking online didn´t work out so I wrote an email. Response: Book online. Well, I tried that. The next day the booking went through. Arriving at the hostel the same tour was 50 Rand cheaper. As they called for me...More

As with all things in nature, we came hoping to see rather than expecting. Having driven all the way from Cape Town the night before just for this tour, we would have been disappointed if the meerkats had decided to stay in bed, but it...More

Ignore the 'bad instructions/directions posts'. You have to get the instructions at the 11th hour for a good reason - they need to know where the meerkats have settled for the night! We had clear instructions for meeting point, arrived with about 15 cars and...More

Meeting point was easily found and the convoy of 50 plus people to area acceptable. A lot of repeated instructions and preamble plus poor organisation of payments resulted in a great deal of waiting around. The large group was split into two. After another short...More

Early start for a very special experience. Meerkat family totally unperturbed by our presence and doing what Meerkats do in the wild....whilst looking very cute!! Very knowledgeable and informative guides. Fantastic must-do activity in the shadows of the magnificent Swartsberg Mountains...a real treat ❣️
