If you have a love for nature then this tour is for you!
Oudtshoorn is situated in the northern part of the Garden Route, and is the perfect place to view Meerkats.
These tours, which commence only at sunrise, are dependent on fair weather, since meerkats will not venture outside their burrows on cold and rainy days. (No tours on rainy days & Christmas day). Meerkats are part of the so-called Shy 5 which also includes the bat-eared fox, the aardvark, porcupine and aardwolf. The meerkat tour lasts between 2-3 hours and booking is essential. Upon arrival at the meerkat burrows, guests are treated to a hot cup of coffee, after which they are issued with a lightweight aluminium chair to sit in while observing the meerkats as they come out of the burrow into the sunshine and then go about their daily routine of foraging and frolicking. These habituated wild animals are never fed or handled by humans.
Tours are presented by an experienced tour guide. It is a fantastic experience & unique privilege to get this close to these little creatures in the wild
