The meerkats - Kalahari Red Dunes Lodge - Kalkrand Namibia

The Meerkat Siblings at The Kalahari Red Dunes Lodge....

A short while ago, a person working at the lodge stumbled upon two meerkat babies while inspecting the hiking trails. Whining, the two sat by the roadside with their mother nowhere in sight. He then  took them to the Lodge where they have since been looked after by   the Lodge manager. The two meerkats were tame within a week and have been getting ever more confident every day. They have moved into the manager’s apartment for good and follow him  around wherever he goes.Once in a while they will also make an appearence in the lodge when they want to play.  They especially enjoy the diversion whenever we have theres children around, as both love to be carried around, hugged and petted. The two of them have wormed their way into everyone’s heart!!!!!!
