Sharing a sunrise with meerkats has been on my bucket-list forever. I am not an early morning person so the 5am meet time was a little daunting, but a cup of coffee watching the sun rise prepared us for the 900 metre walk, camp chair...More

To start with the basics, it is absolutely essential that you book this well in advance, as places are limited. Equally, it is absolutely essential that you call Devey on the day before to get the right rendez-vous time. The website gives you a meet...More
