Well, it is cold at 6.30, but the coffee and rusks were great, Devey is a great host and the path to the burrow was fairly easy even for my 80+ ladies. We were treated with a fireworks display from the army, which didn't seem...More

I am not good at early rising. When I discovered that Devey was suggesting that I fall out of bed at 04.30 I nearly declined. Thank goodness I made the effort. I have now discovered that there is something attractive about sunrise . It was...More

The most amazing thing to do while in this area. We met Devey Ginster, the famous 'Meerkat Man' on a dust road before sunrise. We drove for miles into the countryside to an area of scrubland, we followed him and watched while he put up...More

This was the most wonderful wildlife encounter I have ever experienced. It was lovely to see the dawn break and hear the unfamiliar birdsong as we waited to see the meerkats emerge from their burrows. Devey was very knowledgeable and provided us with fascinating information...More
