To all our fellow South Africans and travellers from across the globe:
It was with bated breath and a heavy heart that we watched our President’s announcement on the stricter measures to be taken concerning COVID19 on the 23rd on March. We would like to applaud our President for standing firm on the need to shutdown as a preventative measure to help curb the spread of the virus. Though not fully in favor of economic development the lives of the citizens had to be put first.
Due to the 21 day shutdown of South Africa as announced, it is with great sadness to announce that Tenikwa Wildlife Rehabilitations’ last day of being opened to the public will be Thursday the 26th of March 2020 until the 16th of April 2020. Our staff will will stay at home around these slated days, leaving out a the few staff that stay on site to be responsible to take care and feed the animals currently at Tenikwa, both the resident and our rehabilitation animals.
As we highly depend on gate-takings to facilitate the on goings of our rehabilitation work, the shutdown will significantly make income non-existent and we call upon all who is reading this post to assist us.

Our hearts and minds are with all the citizens of this beautiful country during this time of Emergency.
Stay safe, stay healthy.
