Tenikwa has provided rehabilitation facilities for wild animals in need for over 17 years, and we believe that we have played a significant role in supporting biodiversity in our region.
As the founders and creators of Tenikwa and all it stands for, Len and I have made the decision to stop admitting wildlife for rehabilitation from the end of March this year and focus Tenikwa’s efforts into the education and awareness aspects of conservation tourism.
The non-releasable animals will remain at Tenikwa and the public-facing side will still stay open. Tours and accommodation facilities will continue to operate as normal. Whilst we will no longer be rehabilitating wild animals to return to nature, we are still fully committed to using our facilities to raise awareness about South African wildlife and the impacts of human-wildlife conflict, which has always been one of the prime missions at Tenikwa.
The authorities will advise in due course where the public can take wildlife for rehabilitation purposes. Animals still in rehabilitation at Tenikwa after March will continue to be cared for by us and complete their rehabilitation cycle for release.
