This is a complete waste of time and money. Had to wake up before sunlight to catch the meerkats, arrive to a tea or coffee you have to make yourself, and some biscuits that the guide seemed more interested in feeding the mice. Meerkats themselves...More

Well worth the early wake-up to see these creatures as they come out and meet the day. We were really appreciative of the guides taking pictures of us as well since we couldn't move around much as we were watching them. The guides were knowledgeable...More

The experience was well worth the early start and the wait for the meerkats to wake up and show themselves they were so cute. We watched them warm up and stand guard and then frolic about for a good hour or so before they scampered...More

I'll start by saying that my husband and I are not "nature lovers". But I had heard about this Meerkat Adventure and decided to give it a try! So happy we did! The adventure begins with a meeting point at 5:45 a.m. They then take...More

As we drove the dark, empty streets of Oudtshoorn at 5:30 am to find the rendezvous point, we were, we admit, questioning our sanity. We were amazed to find cars double-parked in two long lines awaiting our 5:45 am departure (to be in the field...More

We visited the meerkats in early February 2017 and were thrilled to see them so close. We arrived at the meeting point at 5.30 am (best to work out exactly where it is the day before!) and Devey took us in convoy a few miles...More
