The Meerkat Adventure was a great excuse for us to deviate from the Garden Route to explore Oudtshoorn. We weren't disappointed in our decision. The meerkats were fascinating to watch once they showed themselves to Devey. He set us up to observe the meerkats come...More

Devey Glinster is one of a kind. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience with him, observing meerkats in the wild, at close proximity. They are not trained but Devey has over time made them used to having humans so close to them. We appreciated his great...More

The meerkat experience was everything it promised to be! Before we actually went to the merkat viewing point, we were pampered with hot chocolate, coffee, tea and rusk because it is very cold before sunrise. The tour people check out in the evening where the...More

If you love nature and if you like meerkats, this is for you. It is fantastic to experience the sunrise within that beautiful scenery. It get´s much better and is a special moment when the meerkats become awake. We were lucky and saw even young...More

Devey the guide was a cool cat and so were the meerkats. Well worth the early rise. Davery provides an authentic viewing experience with lots of background and he is a wealth of knowledge. We loved the outing and the stories.
