Sunrise - Cats In Conservation

Plettenberg Bay

Activity Description

Cats in Conservation – An inspirational, exclusive program geared towards the animal lover who enjoys adventure in conservation. This program gives you an insight into the daily activities at Tenikwa and is designed to keep you enthralled throughout the day.

With a window into our wildlife rehabilitation facilities and interesting “behind the scenes” activities, enjoy the day with the resident animals who call Tenikwa their home.

A special part of the day for guests and cheetahs alike, is the time spent in the Cape Floral Fynbos where our cheetahs get the opportunity to explore their extended territory. Only a few guests each day are privileged to observe the cheetahs during this special time, making it a really unique experience. Enjoy a picnic of local fare in our pristine Tsitsikamma Indigenous Forest. Surrounded by forest sounds, one can easily get mesmerized by the beauty of nature.

The day is fun, it’s adventurous. Expect the Unexpected.

We had a great time at the Cats In Conservation even though the weather did not cooperate. All the staff were very knowledgeable and put forth the effort to make sure all of our questions were answered. All aspects of the program were very informative and well planned from the Vet visit, feedings, Cheetah walk, and sensory training. Lunch was good as well. The facility is well designed and the enclosures allow for great viewing. - Michael Spahr
