After breakfast, you will be escorted to the meerkat burrows where you will be treated to a hot cup of coffee. The tours last between 2-3 hours. You will be 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.

The day before the booked tour, JD has to go out and search for the meerkats. Upon his return from the field he will then inform us of the meeting point and time.
