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

Up before dawn to meet up to the taken to await the meerkats popping up as the sun comes up, and it's worth the early start. Devey was great and very knowledgeable, so much so that this is the second time we've done this.

An amazing adventure and Devey is an amazing guy, he knows everything about meerkats. On the tour he takes you to a field close to Oudtshoorn at sunrise, you just sit there and wait for the meerkats to wake up. There are a total of...More

It's an early start, but what a thrill. Devey's timing was perfect: we set up our chairs around the meerkats' current burrow entrance, and a minute or two later a meerkat popped its head out and stood alert, then another and another and some babies...More

We went with Devey in December 2011 to see the meerkats... It was beautiful. Truly fantastic - too many people get as far as Oudshoorn and don't bother to see the meerkats (because you have to get up when they do, which is early). So...More

We really enjoyed our meerkat adventure! Devey started our early morning adventure with coffee and then handed out chairs for us to sit-on while we waited for the meerkats. He walked us into the field where we all put out our chairs and waited for...More

Our experience with Devey and the meerkats was the highlight of our trip. Devey is very knowledgeable on the lives of meerkats. He knew them by name and was able to distinguish each one in the family and their roles!! He never interferes in their...More
