Daily Day Tours and Overnight Experiences
We are open to the public and offer a selection of conservation based tours to suit all interests and budget. All programs have an educational focus on the indigenous wild cats of South Africa and other local wildlife. A variety of indigenous birds, such as Blue Cranes, Marabou Storks and waterfowls frequent the gardens of Tenikwa, the extent of which covers some 8ha with the balance of the 46ha set aside for the wild animals occurring in the area. Tenikwa employs over 30 permanent members of the local community and income from our tours are used to fund our rehabilitation facilities and conservation activities.
Guests are charmed by the sincerity of Tenikwa, the friendliness of our staff and the way in which Tenikwa’s passion for conservation shines through.
Whether you visit us for a day, or for an hour……..
“Come with an Open Mind, Tread with a Lighter Step, Leave with a Change of Heart”
How we started
Tenikwa grew from humble beginnings in 2002 when the owners started rehabilitating injured birds in a wooded shed behind their house. Today it is one of the largest active wildlife rehabilitation centres in the Western Cape, attending to a diverse variety of animals accepting both terrestrial and marine species.
