A project involving conservation, tourism, filming and research


Walk with Meerkats is a program aimed at bringing people into close contact with nature. The experience of walking with wild meerkats in their natural habitat leaves people awe struck with an enormous sense of peace and closeness to nature. I have watched guests jaded after the big five experience reawaken after a few hours of walking with these charismatic little creatures.

The program includes conservation, tourism, filming and research in an eclectic mix to enrich all those involved. Wild groups of meerkats are habituated to human presence and accept people in their lives as just another part of their landscape. Meerkats seeking a high point from which to perform sentinel duty will often choose the head of a seated person and this closeness to the cogs of life in nature’s wheel is priceless.
