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

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

Sharing a sunrise with meerkats has been on my bucket-list forever. I am not an early morning person so the 5am meet time was a little daunting, but a cup of coffee watching the sun rise prepared us for the 900 metre walk, camp chair...More

To start with the basics, it is absolutely essential that you book this well in advance, as places are limited. Equally, it is absolutely essential that you call Devey on the day before to get the right rendez-vous time. The website gives you a meet...More
