Customer Reviews

I had a great time. It was very special and the guide put good effort in creating opportunities for great shots. Thank you for the experience. - Mandy Wright

It was a great tour and expirience. Thank you for all. - Mark Wittmer

It was memorable and adequate time was spent in each enclosure. The Tour Guide was excellent and very informative. I have passed on all the details to friends who visit that area consistently. Many thanks & God Bless - Nigel Paul

We had such a wonderful time on the photographic tour: we did it the morning after we went on the sunset cheetah walk (fabulous) and the guides made us very welcome again. Safety was paramount as we entered the enclosures of the different cats (except the leopard, but we got so close that our photos are wonderful). The guide was very knowledgeable and answered our many questions. There were only 4 of us so we had lots of his attention and he made sure we got the shots we wanted. We were never hurried and the guide was very patient. It is worth taking a proper camera as you really do have the opportunity to take wonderful shots. You don't need a huge zoom lens as the animals are very close. This was a truly memorable experience and our photographs are the best souvenir we could have. Tenikwa does wonderful work promoting conservation and treating injured wildlife before releasing them back to the wild wherever possible. The animals at Tenikwa are well looked after and the staff are passionate about caring for each one. We really enjoyed our time there: it is well worth a visit - Lorna Stoddart

Excellent tour. I like that you have a tour especially for those of us interested in photography and getting close for the shots. The guide was also informative and experienced. I have already recommended this tour to several people. - Michelle Tanmizi
