“Meerkat Magic DON'T GO”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Hear that in 5 years nothing has changed at Magic Meerkat from Grant. In November 2008 I tried to have a tour. Had only communication via the e-mail. When I went to South Africa, nothing was heard or seen by Grant, no response by e-mail and a helping travel agency also could not reach him. Fortunately I did not pay in advance. This was the change of my life to see my most favorite animals. I hope people try to get him out of business.

“Too expensive”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

It was fun to see the meercats but this was vastly overpriced. Half the rate would have still been expensive.

“Have Fun with Meerkat.....!”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

It is a very special activity in Oudtshoorn. The guide gave us a lot of information about the meerkats. It is very funny when we see them stand up together under the sun.
