The Hooligans were a spin-off of Sequoia that formed in early 2012 after a splinter consisting of three Sequoia females and one male could be re-tracked again. After the dispersal of one female, they consisted of three meerkats, led by Nik Nak. She attracted several suitors, but none of them stayed for long. One male dispersed while the other, Pitio, immigrated into the Überkatz group. Nik Nak however was predated in October 2012, bringing an end to the Hooligans history.
They lived in the center of the reserve, near the Rus en Vrede farmhouse.
