‘Meerkats on the move’

Captured by UK wildlife photographer Ann Toon — who, together with husband and fellow photographer Steve, is a regular contributor to Travel Africa — this image was judged runner-up in the Mammals category in the prestigious GDT European Nature Photographer of the Year Awards 2019.

It was taken in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, straddling the border of Botswana and South Africa, where the couple spent many hours shadowing a small colony of meerkats that had established occasional sleeping burrows in a quiet corner of one of the reserve’s rest camps. Because these wild animals regularly spend time among humans, they could be accessed easily on foot for long periods and photographed at ground level. They quickly became accustomed to having Ann and Steve around, so much so the couple felt they were almost accepted as part of the group.
