This is quiet an experience. You drive all the way up to Oudtshoorn, get up before dawn, meet Davie... read more

On this trip to SA we made a special side trip to Oudshoorn just for the Meerkats - we were not disappointed. Very knowledgable guides, great accommodation at Dee Zeekoe and an amazing morning with the Meerkats - highly recommended.

Highly recommend if you want to learn how meerkats live in the wild. The guides have spent years observing and studying the meerkat families and are very informative. What we appreciate was the meerkats are not tamed so you get to see their natural behaviour....More
