During a drive down the Garden Route my wife and I took the opportunity to spend the day here on the Cats Conservation Tour. Well worth the time to see what is being done at Tenikwa to help rehabilitate a wide range of wildlife, not just cats. Boniwe did a great job showing us round the rehabilitation area and explaining how they treat injured animals that are brought to them. In many cases they take care to minimise human interaction in order that they may be re-released into the wild.
Mfundo then took us on a photographic tour of the facilities, something I had specifically asked about. For various reasons the animals viewed here could not be released but action was taken to ensure they had a chance to lead an active life rather than being stuck in a pen. We had the chance to see this with the lions. We also had the chance to enter the areas with many of the animals, though clearly not all.One of the highlights of the day was seeing one of the cheetahs on a its daily enrichment walk.
On top of the excellent tours refreshments and lunch were excellent.
Well worth a visit and great work being done here.
