Meerkat interaction

The essence of the Meerkat interaction

The Kalahari’s ongoing Habituation Programme at Jack’s Camp and San Camp in Botswana’s Kalahari Desert presents travelers with the unique opportunity to interact with the animated meerkat, made famous by the Lion King’s Timon. The charming meerkats inquisitively look out onto the plains of the desert, noses firmly in the air, eager to touch base with willing visitors. The habitual meerkats are not tame, but will gladly snuggle up to travelers on chilly mornings or climb atop heads that are promptly used as viewing posts to aid in later foraging excursions.
