Mingling with Meerkats

3 Day / 2 Night Itinerary

De-stress,
discover yourself and
define your own destiny

Through this acclaimed program, Mandy Young, a psychotherapist with 24 years of experience, now offers you the chance of a lifetime. An opportunity to magically mingle with meerkats! Ultimately, it is an opportunity to discover yourself. Mandy works together with Grant M McIlrath, an experienced, active research biologist and conservationist, who is the world's foremost expert on wild meerkat behavior. Like a modern-day St Francis of Assisi, Grant interacts effortlessly with the meerkats, using a completely unobtrusive, yet entirely sustainable nature conservation process. Ecotherapy programs are uniquely and specifically designed to offer you the opportunity to unwind in a wilderness space, take time to nurture yourself, and to be inspired, challenged and humoured as the gregarious soap opera unfolds around the activities and social interactions of the Ungulungu Meerkat family.
