A few, and just a few have had a whinge about cost etc. but if you want to see the Meerkats close up emerging slowly from their burrow as the sun comes up, this is just great. We didn't do this 2 years ago because the weather was bad, so look at the weather forecast before you book. If the... More

At the end of October we had to meet Devey at 5.30 am and we travelled each by own car to the beginning point at the Zeekoefarm. This morning we had to walk quit a bit to see the meerkats. As we arrived it was lovely. The explanation of the guide was very good and we heard a lot of... More

One of the more random but brilliant holiday experiences (you basically get up before sunrise to sit in deckchairs with a cup of tea waiting for meerkats to appear!). It was fantastic being so close to these fascinating animals and learning all about them from our passionate guide. We were perhaps lucky with our experience as it was a beautiful... More

To be able to observe so closely (we were seated about 2 metres from them) and learn about these little creatures, members of the shy 5, was incredibly interesting and informative. I would definitely recommend this outing to anyone, nature lover or or not. I also liked the fact that we were sent photographs of our group participating in the... More

I heard about the Meerkats and thought I had to share this unique experience with my visiting Irish friend, bearing in mind that he does not do the tourist thing... I was also, admittedly, a bit apprehensive after reading some of the negative reviews, but decided to take the leap and book the excursion. I can honestly say, I LOVED... More

We travelled to Outdshoorn especially to see the meerkats, and we weren't disappointed. There were 2 baby meerkats, and altogether we were able to watch their behaviour for 2 hours. My children, aged 10, 14, and 16 were entranced. Rudolph was our guide and he was very knowledgeable and friendly. If you are interested in animals you will love it.

This was one of the highlights of our South African Safari to share time with these fascinating creatures was a privilege. Rudolph our guide was informative and knowledgable. Expensive yes by South African standards but worth every penny.

I am a sceptic so let's get that out of the way straight off! I dislike animal interaction on principal because I don't agree with physical interaction with wild or "tame" animals. So I decided to give this project a visit and boy was I happy I did! The educational aspect is huge; the interaction is limited to a no-touch... More

The morning spent with the meerkats was very well organized and informative but way overpriced for what you get. After having a cup of tea or hot coffee, we walked out into the field and position ourselves in chairs around the meerkat burrow. After the sun rises, the meerkats emerge one by one. They stand facing the sun for fifteen... More

Watching the sunrise over the Klein Karoo, coffee and rusks at hand, we prepared for a wonderful couple of hours learning about, watching and photographing these intriguing creatures. Devey and Rudolph had organised the whole event extremely well from meeting point to camping chairs and blankets near the Meerkat burrows. Then the stars of the show made their entry! The... More
