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 them, sitting down for a half hour or so and walk back to your car.... More

This is a must do activity in my opinion. Reading some of the other reviews I can see that some international travelers either dont appreciate the effort these people go to or the complexity of the animals behavior. Whoever said there would be "breakfast" served? Get a grip, its the bush - just appreciate what you get if you get... More

We booked a tour on the website and we were very happy and we couldnt wait to meet the merkaats...the day before the tour we had to call to know the departure hour and to know if the tour was confirmed because it is weather permited. Unfortunately we called many times and we never had answer...no profesionnal at all !

The experience was overbooked so there were far too many of us. At arrival to the site "breakfast" was set up which included a hard biscuit and cold coffee. We then went to sit and wait to see the meerkats on the fold up chairs. Granted - the weather meant they took a while to come out which is no... More

Fun experience watching the little creatures in action. The bonus was seeing other animals on the reserve.

We pre-booked this trip before starting our holiday, but the trip had been over-booked (apparently a regular occurrence) so there were 24 of us in total. However, that wasn't a problem, as the guides took good care to make sure everyone was able to get a good view of the meerkats - you sit in seats and are asked not... More

We had to get up early, drove to meet the tour guides who led us a few kms down to road and into an open area off the main road for a cuppa. It was quite cool and we were led along into the grassland for a few hundred metres where the lads set us up on folding chairs to... More

We were a small group, and the meerkats where spooked the day – but o when they came out. These animals are adorable and the antics are too cute. Devey and his son have a lot of knowledge and share this on the tour, it is great to learn this about one of the shy five.

An amazing experience!!! They lived up to their promises, the crew were amazing, things they taught us were actually astounding, considering I’m in my 30’s and didn’t know half of it!  It was really a dream that came true for my parents, we took amazing pictures and as a family have stunning memories! We received pictures from Devey and... More
