Hi Purrcy,

I can highly recommend the meerkats, we went on the tour in October and it was definitely one of the highlights of our SA honeymoon trip. the tour is lead by Grant McIlrath who has an amazing knowledge of all things meerkat. the tour started about 6am and we went to the burrow where the meerkat group had gone to bed the night before, so we ready there waiting when they woke up, we were very close only about 3 or 4 metres from the entrance to the burrow. Once all the meerkats are awake, they set off to forage for the food, at which point we followed them and did so for about 1.5 - 2 hours, we must have walked at least a mile if not more. The tour was finished by 9am, so leaving the rest of the day free for you to enjoy.

If its any help, we stayed at the La Plume guesthouse (very nice) , which was close to the start of the tour, about 5-10 mins drive. They (the guesthouse)even gave us a picnic breakfast as we were out while they were serving breakfast

Hope you enjoy!

Thank you for the reply. We are early risers so this would be great. Seems like when we're on vacation we spend a lot of time waiting for things to "open".

La Plume it is -- meerkats here we come! Can't wait!!!

Thanks again!
