Tenikwa Wildlife Awareness Centre  raises awareness of our philosophy and provide a sustainable form of funding for our Wildlife Rehabilitation facilities. Using Tourism as a platform gives this vital conservation effort exposure to many thousands of people who visit The Garden Route, South Africa, each year. We practice Responsible Tourism principles and support sustainable business practices.

The iconic indigenous cats of South Africa assist us to raise awareness about their plight being a good example of species impacted by human influence and attracting visitors to our centre. It is important to Tenikwa, that visitors experience our animals in a natural setting, not only to highlight the importance of protecting the wild spaces which they live in, but also to allow our animals to express as much natural behaviour as possible.

The animals that we use for our awareness program are not releasable, and it is our duty to ensure that they live a fulfilled life in captivity. Our Animal Husbandry Protocols have been developed to keep our animals physically fit and psychologically healthy, and one aspect of a visit to Tenikwa which is consistently remarked upon is how content our cats are.We offer a variety of programs catering for all ages and fitness levels. with a focus on providing informative conservation-based tours. Time frames vary between 1 hour tours offered right throughout the day, to more exclusive leisurely programs.

Tenikwa is a conservation orientated business that raises awareness about the plight of indigenous South African Wildcats and Wildlife. Gate takings fund our Wildlife Rehabiltation program which gets wild animals back into the wild where they belong We offer daily programs to see and experience the wild cats of South Africa as well as our very popular "Walk with our Cheetahs" program.
