About Us

Tenikwa Rehabilitation Centre started operating humbly out of a little wooded shed. In fact, this was the very same shed that Len lived in for a year whilst he built the infrastructure at Tenikwa.

In the early days, the Freemans funded all the rehabilitation costs privately, but it quickly became evident that a sustainable source of income was needed in order to support the on-going costs of the growing rehabilitation centre. This, together with the deep-seated knowledge that education is the most powerful tool of change, led to the concept of opening a Wildlife Awareness Centre to the public in 2007.

Offering exceptional ethically-based conservation educational programs, guests at Tenikwa have the chance to learn about South African Indigenous Wild Cats in an environment which emulates natural habitat. During the programs, guests are exposed to non-lethal up-to-date methods of predator management, environmentally-friendly and techno-savvy farming practices, and how we can co-exist with wildlife. Interest-specific and age-targeted programs are offered like the Private Photographic Tour and EcoKidz Family Challenge designed to challenge the whole family to learn about the Wild Cats of South Africa in a fun and educational manner. Tenikwa adheres to the safety protocols and a no-touch policy with the cats on all our programs.
