A very exciting morning awaited on us as we visited the Meerkat family in the field. Lazarus, the Meerkat whisperer, was already there and as we arrived the meerkats went back into their homes. We sat down and the meerkats slowly started to come back out.
They weren't very happy about us, but eventually got used to us.
They started to do their daily routines, watching out for danger, looking for food in the field and showing the little ones how it's done. Afterwards they went out into the field, disappearing in the long dry grass.
