Welcome to

Tenikwa Rehabilitation & Awareness Centre

Accommodation, Day Tours, and Overnight Experiences
Tenikwa offers a selection of conservation-based wildlife tours to suit all interests and budget. All activities have an educational focus on the indigenous wild cats of South Africa, the role of small predators and other local endemic wildlife. Tenikwa has recently extended our offering to include overnight experiences, with accommodation in the Tenikwa Country House and family suites, so that guests may stay at Tenikwa and enjoy a complete nature experience.

A variety of indigenous birds, such as Blue Cranes, Marabou Storks and waterfowl frequent the gardens of Tenikwa, the extent of which covers some 8ha with the balance of the 46ha of indigenous Tsitsikamma Forest and Cape Floral Fynbos set aside as a corridor for the wild animals occurring in the area.

Tenikwa is a non-profit organisation. All income derived from tourism activities at Tenikwa support the sustainability of Tenikwa as a vital wildlife rehabilitation facility for The Garden Route. Whilst the Rehabilitation facilities are not open to the general public for obvious reasons, a visit to Tenikwa contributes to the conservation work being carried out in The Garden Route to support the rich biodiversity of this special area.

Guests are charmed by the sincerity of Tenikwa, the friendliness of our staff and the way in which Tenikwa’s passion for conservation shines through.

Whether you visit us for a day, or for an hour……..
