suricates very close Sep 09, 2014
If you’ve ever wanted to see wild suricates very close then this tour is what you have to do. The tours start early in the morning (depending on sunrise, in September it was 6.30) and are only cancelled if it rains. There is a meeting point where Rudolf and Devey pick you up and bring you to the place where the meerkats live. First they offer coffee, tea and hot chocolate. Then you grab a camping fold chair and walk to the hole where they went sleeping last night. That means Rudolf and Devey have to look for the suricates every evening to be able to show the people the right hole. So you sit down around the hole and wait until these shy animals come out. Because they are wild you can’t predict when it’s going to happen – it can be an hour or five minutes. We were very lucky and after five minutes the leader came out to check the surroundings. Bit by bit more of them appeared to get the first sunlight. When the meerkats start looking for food they leave the hole and the tour comes to an end. You then have to pay for the tour (cash). It’s 550R each, for guests of Zeekoe 450R because they are the owner of this property. It’s quite pricey and everybody has to decide oneself if it’s worth it. I can recommend it definitively.
