Seeing the meerkats in their natural environment is something we will never forget. Excellent guides - so informative and passionate. Waiting for the first meerkat to appear as the sun rises and the excitement when it does... Watching the rest of the family appear and...More

Devey Glinister is just wonderful. We eventually saw meerkats at our third attempt and it was worth all the effort of getting up early three times. There is a sense of being part of the meerkat world as they wake up and stand facing the...More

As promised, they popped up right in front of us. The very informative guide told us all about meerkats, as well as this specific family and the work and research the team do there. These are truly wild animals and so the timing does vary,...More

Most people visit Oudtshoorn for the Cango Caves and ostriches. Great excursions, but do yourself a favour: Contact De Zeekoe Guesthouse and book their Meerkat Adventure. It means getting up early but it is worth it. The show is run by university students who spend...More

I love 5 day Test Match Cricket and to me this experience was for the Naturalist equivalent. If you prefer 20/20 then go and see Meerkats in a zoo where you will be guaranteed entertainment but the purists will look down their noses at you....More

Not cheap, but worth it. Get a great view of such a rare and fascinating animal. The guides seemed extremely passionate and knowledgeable which is always good. Also pleasing that the meerkats were still wild, and were not interfered with at all by humans. Not...More

Everything was well organized and we saw a whole family of Meerkats! We got some coffee to get the morning going on, then walked couple hundred meters and sat on our chairs and waited for the Meerkats. We didn't need to wait very long after...More

Up at 430am - Meerkat burrows on De Zeekoe farm at 6.00am - then wait, and wait, and wait. A few sneaky looks between 630 and 800 - we almost gave up as one family did - but then at 815 the family of 10...More

We had a very good encounter with a family of ten meerkat. I do however think that at R600 per head it is overpriced.

This was the highlight of our visit to the Oudtshoorn area. The experience is well worth the early meeting time. The individuals who organize the meerkat viewing are just great, and very knowledgeable about the animals and their habits. Really a very special experience which...More
