Park groups


KMP meerkat research started in 1993, in the Gemsbok National Park (now Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park). Research, but also meerkat behaviour was often different to that at the KRR site, and a drought in 1994/1995 decimated the population. However, researchers observed 16 meerkat groups over the course of five years - e.g. the Jacksons, South or Sandile who all prospered for a long time. Chronologies of all groups, along with a wealth of background information to the KMP research at the park, are now available for Friends of the Kalahari Meerkat Project.

The Friends Package for the Park Groups includes:


  • A short history of KMP research at the park
  • Meerkat behaviour in the park, and its differences to that at the KRR
  • Research at the park, and its differences to that at the KRR
  • Background information to the drought of 1994/1995

  • Groups overview with locations and observation years
  • An eleven page chronology of all observed meerkat groups.
  • Pictures of research at the park, and of Juma, the famous National Geographic meerkat.


This Friends package is available to Friends of this group only.
