Meerkats Divided

Meerkats Divided

Meerkats Divided is a 1996 documentary following the success of the early meerkat documentary, Meerkats United (1994). Narrated by David Attenborough, this 30 minute film looks into the lives of southern Africa's "Addo" meerkat gang, named after the reserve they live on; The Addo National Park. The group are constantly at war with their vicious territory-seeking neighbours, followed by the amorous rover Bandit, facing larger-then-life challenges on a daily basis and are caught in the struggle to find food. These darker, southern meerkat species prove
