This is not for everyone. Meerkats in their natural habitat do whatever they want so you need a certain love for nature and patience to motivate yourself to get up at 4am. We were lucky because they had chosen the closest burrow to the cars...More

We were very excited to see the meerkats in the wild, so as advertised on the website we tried to contact them a day before (no answer). So I guess we ll save 440 rands per persons and see them at the Cango wildlife ranch.

Loved this little excursion. After setting up to wait for the meerkats to pop out of their burrows, our guide (Rudolfo I think was his name) was fantastic with the information before and after they popped out. He even had said if he had known...More
