This was the highlight of our visit to the Oudtshoorn area. The experience is well worth the early meeting time. The individuals who organize the meerkat viewing are just great, and very knowledgeable about the animals and their habits. Really a very special experience which...More

We booked this on our recent self drive holiday to South Africa. We stayed locally so the early start at 5am was followed by only a short drive. This is well worth doing as the guides are brilliant and will give you all the facts...More
