We went with Meerkat Adventures and not with Meerkat Magic. Eventhough we had to get up at 4am in the morning driving from Wilderness to Oudtshoorn to meet at 5:45 it was worth it! The booking was very uncomplicated over their website, Devey and his...More

Ignore the 'bad instructions/directions posts'. You have to get the instructions at the 11th hour for a good reason - they need to know where the meerkats have settled for the night! We had clear instructions for meeting point, arrived with about 15 cars and...More

Meeting point was easily found and the convoy of 50 plus people to area acceptable. A lot of repeated instructions and preamble plus poor organisation of payments resulted in a great deal of waiting around. The large group was split into two. After another short...More

Early start for a very special experience. Meerkat family totally unperturbed by our presence and doing what Meerkats do in the wild....whilst looking very cute!! Very knowledgeable and informative guides. Fantastic must-do activity in the shadows of the magnificent Swartsberg Mountains...a real treat ❣️

Loved visiting the meerkats at dawn. The guides were very knowledgeable and knew exactly where to place us when they come out of their homes in the morning. Great experience. Highly recommend

We booked a Meerkat adventure and were given clear and unmistakable instructions about where to meet up the following morning at 5 AM. That night it rained and in the morning it was just about dry. After a few minutes we found the meeting point,...More

This is a great experience to get to see wild meerkats in their natural environment with in a few metres. The guides are very knowledgeable and have put in a lot of behind the scenes work to ensure the meerkats are comfortable with humans within...More

This was an absolutely amazing experience. We were lucky that the weather was perfect I see some of the reviews are critical but you can’t guarantee the performance of wild animals. The meerkats are unbelievably cute. The guides extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the animals....More

I went all the way from Cape Town just for this experience and I was not disappointed. The team is great and meerkats let us waited maybe just 15min. Awesome!

Alongside everything else on this holiday (bar the hotel bookings!), we booked very late for this experience. We were unsure whether there would be space when we emailed just the day beforehand, but Devey said it was fine. We needn’t have worried because our large...More
