An early morning start which is worth it to listen to the experts and understand how false some documentaries are. Of course the meerkats are cute.

Early rise to leave by 05:45. Hot coffee on hand to warm us up. Very knowledgeable guides add to the experience. The sight of that first little head popping out of the burrow is priceless. What an awesome,personal experience. Always take something warm to wear.
