A family of meerkats are seen in this footage waking up in the early morning, peeking out of their burrow to check for danger. Once it appears safe, they start to go further afield. Youngsters play, while adults do some digging to maintain the den. They are always on alert and have several den opening to run into for safety.
The footage was filmed in Kalahari, South Africa on September 7, 2013.
