Customer Reviews


Unfortunately, no one have told us that the boat trip has been canceled and the children were very disspointed on arrival. - Moran Ben-Dor

Visiting Tenikwa with our primary and secondary school learners for our educational outings in the holidays was the right choice. The guides were great with all the kids and they gave very clear information answering all kids' questions. The tour takes about one hour, which is a good duration and gives everyone the opportunity to meet all the different wild cats at Tenikwa. We will definitely be back, thanks Tenikwa team! - Born In Africa - Veronique Claes

We visited the wildcat sanctuary first thing in the morning and were the only people on our tour. Our guide was Las who who was very friendly and knowledgable. After a short film about the work of the sanctuary we set out with Las and viewed a number of the cats from outside their enclosures. We were able to enter the wildcat and cheetah enclosures which was a bit nerve-wracking but wonderful to be able to get so close to these beautiful creatures. Las left us at the meerkat enclosure. It was good to be able to watch them at our own pace. A very good tour. - John Ankers

The visit was really nice. We das the animals really near from us. It was amazing. - Laura Cuellar
