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

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.

Meerkats were at the top of our list for animals we wanted to see in South Africa, having seen many of the other usual safari animals in other countries. Devey's tour offers the chance to get much closer to these wild animals for much longer...More
