The experience was overbooked so there were far too many of us. At arrival to the site "breakfast" was set up which included a hard biscuit and cold coffee. We then went to sit and wait to see the meerkats on the fold up chairs....More

We pre-booked this trip before starting our holiday, but the trip had been over-booked (apparently a regular occurrence) so there were 24 of us in total. However, that wasn't a problem, as the guides took good care to make sure everyone was able to get...More

To watch Meerkats in their natural habitat is simply wow ! especially for first-timers like me... JD and his brother are nice guides, very informative with sound knowledge of what they are up-to. It's a pleasant set-up where you are seated in semi-circle with the...More

Let's start with the negatives... It's a very early wake up! (6:30 start for us, as early as 5am in the peak summer days). However, it is well worth the early rise! We drove to a nearby meeting point and were escorted to a car...More
