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.

You meet at the farm and then walk to where the meerkats "camped out" the previous night. You may walk several hundred meters. Then you sit and wait for them to come out sometime after the early morning sun warms them up. You then view...More
