Full description
Plant the love of wildlife in your children on a safari adventure at Tenikwa Wildlife Rehabilitation & Awareness Centre. On this 1.5-hour tour, you and your young family will be introduced to an array of South Africa’s wildest animals. Prepare to be entertained and inspired with an introduction to the conservation efforts of the facility before setting off to meet meerkats and learning why—despite their cute demeanor—they make miserable pets. Walk through the owl house and visit Digger the friendly warthog. After this, you will visit penguins and other marine animals. The family will then be taken to visit the African wildcats, which you will have to spot using techniques and trail signs taught to you by your expert guide. Spot slender servals and camouflaged caracals on a walkway tour that leads up to the leopard and cheetah enclosures, designed to safely get you up close and personal with these majestic creatures. Finally, bid farewell to a grand white lion before your kids are awarded an EcoKidz certificate.

Very helpful and enthusiastic guide, can't remember his name. It was for us a new experience to see such wonderful animals, and how they have been rescued, and being looked after so well. Well done to the team over there!
