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

It’s a great experience to see the Meerkat in their wild life, but the price is too much expensive (R600 = €37). The tour is for 3hours, but in our case the tour duration was less than 2hours. But the price was the same... The...More

We included Oudtshoorn on our itinerary for South Africa purely for the meerkat adventure trip. We were not disappointed. The early start is absolutely worth it and watching the sunrise as you wait for the meerkats is wonderful. We arrived at the meeting point at...More

This was an excellent experience from start to finish. 5am is definitely an early start whilst on holiday but it is 100% worth it. Watching the meerkats is enchanting. They slowly emerge from their burrows and then begin their morning ritual of warming up in...More

We booked the tour well in advance as a friend recommended it to us. And it was a great recommendation. After enjoying the sunrise in the little karoo we only had to wait a few minutes until the meerkats appeared. It was lovely to see...More
