Tenikwa Wildlife

Tenikwa Wildlife rehabilitation and awareness center

About the project

Tenikwa has its beginnings in 2002 when the owners started rehabilitating injured birds in a wooden shed behind their house. By now they are one of the largest wildlife rehabilitation centers in the region and have a specialized wildlife hospital. Tenikwa takes in injured or abandoned wildlife, rehab them and then release them back to the wild where they belong. All programs have a focus on the indigenous wild cats of South Africa and guests can learn about the challenges the wildlife is facing. Tenikwa employs over 30 permanent members of the local community and gate takings are used to fund our rehabilitation and conservation programs. Tenikwa stands for ethical wildlife tourism and responsible wildlife experiences.
