We didn't actually see the meerkats because the price was outrageous. BTW one sees the meerkats when they emerge at dawn.

The whole gift box is a scam: only 10% goes to the supposed charity ie £1.50 for every £15 box. Give to reputable charity not these vultures.

This is one of the rare chances where you can go and see a whole family of meerkats that have not been domesticated but simply habituated to deal with their daily visitors.
Wonderful photographs and guide even took photos of the group to send to us, proving that we have seen meerkats

This was truly a unique experience, a bit expensive a must say, but for 1 time worth to do this. Our guide was very, very good.

This was one of the highlights of our trip- 7 of us out just before dawn sitting around a mound in the karoo- and on cue as the sun came up so did the first meerkat- followed by 14 of his family. We had 45 minutes of pure magic- worth every rand .
