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

Really something to consider if you have the time. You meet Devey, your guide to all things meerkat, at a prearranged juncture in the road about 5:05 AM. At 5:15 you follow him about 15 KM to a site where he provides tea or coffee....More

This is a tour led by Devey, an interesting fellow that has basically devoted his life to meerkats. He and his family have studied and follow this family on the deZookoe farmland every single day in order to give this pretty incredible experience. They're not...More

It was a real privilege to be able to sit that close to the Meerkats and have them go about their morning ritual mostly unconcerned about our presence. Yes it is expensive but definately worth it. It is not about the quality of the coffee...More

We thoroughly enjoyed the Meerkat Adventure experience. After meeting Davey at the agreed place (on the side of the road) we then followed him into a large piece of land (part of a farm I think). We then walked with him to this spot where...More

Get up at dawn and experience the meerkats waking up and sunning themselves. Wrap up warm though at is is cold. Wonderful experience. We watched them for 60 minutes before they scampered off on their daily foraging. Whole experience lasted 2 hours.

What a special experience this is. Special to be able to spend a little time so close to meerkats but made more so by the entertaining and encyclopaedic knowledge of Devey Glinister your host. Try his web site at www.meerkatadventures.co.za then try not booking with...More
