Walk With The Wild!
Tenikwa offers guests the opportunity for a close encounter with indigenous cats and other creatures of South Africa.
Tenikwa is a wildlife center located in the rural suburb known as The Crags outside Plettenberg Bay and only 40 minutes from the popular town of Knysna. The pristine Garden Route in the Western Cape province of South Africa is well known for its many natural attractions, protected National Parks, and vibrant coastal eco-tourism activities.Our Wildlife Centre is open daily to visitors for conservation-based wildlife tours and cheetah experiences. Amenities include secure parking, WiFi, Credit Card, Baby Changing Facility, disabled guest facilities, coffee, and curio shop.We admit approximately 230 animals each year for rehabilitation and release – getting both marine and terrestrial species back to the wild where they belong. Our wildlife hospital is not open to the general public. A window into Rehabilitation, visit our Marine Conservation Awareness area during your tour where we raise awareness of the significant issues affecting our marine species and especially the endangered African Penguin. We have a meerkat meander, that Tenikwa has built especially for meerkat pets that have been confiscated by Cape Nature Conservation or became unwanted “pets”.
