Customer Reviews

The tour was outstanding! Our guide (Max) was very knowledgeable and made sure we got a great experience. Sharing the compound with a Cheetah was a incredible! We were perhaps fortunate to visit on a cooler, cloudy day when the cats were more active but it was a memorable visit and I can only highly recommend it. - Nicholas Johns

An extremely well run and managed centre with the opportunity to get up close to some of these beautiful big cats. This was our second visit having undertaken a sunset Cheetah walk 3 years ago. Highly recommended - Tim Oxley

Family really enjoyed the guided tour. Very informative friendly guide. The centre does great animal rescue work. - B Simpson

We had quite an unexpectedly amazing and pleasurable experience when we visited Tenikwa. We met the cheetah and the servals up close and personal. Our guide was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions.. Highly recommended. - Stephen Hughes
