This week we’ve spoken with Erin, a camera-wielding yoga teacher, a traveller, and a wine lover. We spoke to her about her adventures in South Africa and how she found wild Meerkats. If you want to find out more about Erin and her travels, you can find her over at Sol Salute, where she shares her stories.
We’ve spoken briefly about your animal encounters while on the road, which have been your favourite to see in their natural environment and why?
How did it make you feel, being able to see wild Meerkat up close in their own home?
Did you experience this encounter with a tour? What made you choose that particular company?
Had you seen them before in a zoo/sanctuary? How did it compare?
Animal tourism has become a big thing over the years. Have you had any experiences that looking back on, you feel weren’t very ethical, you perhaps wouldn’t do again or any that you wouldn’t recommend to other, what was it and why?
What advice would you give other travellers looking to see Meerkat in the wild for themselves?
Do you have any advice on being an ethical traveller?
