Five Shy Meerkats

Welcome to Five Shy Meerkats. Based in Oudtshoorn, South Africa. Situated in the northern part of the Garden Route, with a lot of fun activities, natural wildlife and the home of Meerkat Adventures.

How to Enjoy Five Shy Meerkats

Five Shy are based on one of the most beautiful cattle and alfalfa (lusern) farms in Oudtshoorn, home of, the original meerkat conservation site.

Come join in and take the educational tour with me and the meerkats. They are incredibly adorable and

All Information and photos on this site are from my own(me JD)research and are based on findings and information from seven or eight groups of meerkats that I have worked with around Oudtshoorn in the Little Karoo (South Africa).

You must understand that I have only been researching meerkats since late 2008 when I noticed that the meerkats that I was observing every day we're living in an unnatural meerkat habitat.

See you soon.

We had an incredible morning with the meerkats! Good organisation and clear communication helped us to fully enjoy some most amazing hours with this group of meerkats, which completely stole our hearts. Thanks for that and all the interesting information, that was passed along with a good dose of humour!

This is a must do experience for all wildlife lovers! Very well organised by the friendly, knowledgeable hosts. Allow 2-3 hours because they are wild & don't run to a schedule. All our group thought this was one of our highlights from our holiday.

Dit was een van my "bucket list" wense wat waar geword het. Dit was n ongelooflike ondervindig. Baie dankie vir al die werk en studie wat ingesit is om vir ons dit so interessant te maak en ons het baie geleer van die meerkatte en kyk nou met ander oe na n meerkat. Groete van Wennie ,Laura, Johan en Elmarie Opperman Uit Bethal en Krugersdorp
