“Expensive but worth it”
Reviewed 9 January 2017 via mobile

Not cheap, but worth it. Get a great view of such a rare and fascinating animal. The guides seemed extremely passionate and knowledgeable which is always good.
Also pleasing that the meerkats were still wild, and were not interfered with at all by humans. Not fed or touched all, just used to seeing and hearing humans, so they weren't spooked when they saw us

“Super cute Meerkats only couple meters from us!”
Reviewed 5 January 2017

Everything was well organized and we saw a whole family of Meerkats! We got some coffee to get the morning going on, then walked couple hundred meters and sat on our chairs and waited for the Meerkats. We didn't need to wait very long after we saw the first one, and soon after that the whole family. I was surprised how close they were! Only couple meters from us.

Really loved the experience, Meerkats are the cutest animals.

“Incredible experience - but be patient ”
Reviewed 3 January 2017 via mobile

Up at 430am - Meerkat burrows on De Zeekoe farm at 6.00am - then wait, and wait, and wait.

A few sneaky looks between 630 and 800 - we almost gave up as one family did - but then at 815 the family of 10 meerkats emerged to go off foraging (after a bit of a play to warm up). Amazing experience.

“Meerkat Adventure”
Reviewed 1 January 2017

We had a very good encounter with a family of ten meerkat. I do however think that at R600 per head it is overpriced.

“Highlight of our visit to the area”
Reviewed 12 December 2016

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 should not be missed if you are in the area.
