Part of the Mongoose family these adorable little critters really grabbed our attention in the brilliant Animal Planet  documentary show Meerkat Manor. Hard to spot in the wild due to their size and fondness for only standing still first thing in the morning; we travelled to Oudtshoorn, an hour from George on South Africa’s iconic Garden Route for an opportunity to see these amazing animals in the wild.

We went out with Meerkat Adventures early one December morning. Be prepared to get up very early and be patient, but your chance of seeing them emerge from their nightly slumber is as good as you can get anywhere in the world.
