6 Day Cape to Addo Safari

24 reviews
This incredible South African ecotour offers the chance to swim with great white sharks, jump from the world’s highest bungee and zipline through a treetop obstacle course. Or you can opt for the chill version and simply enjoy cliff-top whale watching, canoeing, game tracking, hiking through national forests and relaxing on beautiful beaches. Whichever route you prefer, this adventure tour of the Cape Peninsula from Cape town will not disappoint.

I really loved this ad really felt honest and animal centric. Animal hospital on site, very knowledgeable guides, one on one tour available. There is no option for silly posing or pranks, animals are not there to be petted.. just what i wanted.. Animals being left alone! You can go in the enclosures with the smaller cats, but at a distance, unless they choose to visit you. Such a good day.

We really enjoyed our visit in Tenikwa. Originally we wanted to book the private tour, but as we were the first guests of the day, at 09:30 we took the group tour, which was similar to a private tour in our case and absolutely lovely. We got lots of information about all the wild cats from Ash our guide, who was very friendly and answered every question we had. We also got the chance to come really close to the animals and take nice pictures of them. For us it didn’t feel like a zoo, because the cages were huge and gave a good feeling of their natural living space. The main focus and goal of the facility is to rehabilitate injured animals and bring them back to wild, but those animals can’t be seen. The wild cats we saw were all for some reason not able to go back to wild and therefore get the best possible surrounding and living space. We also saw a couple of other animals besides the wild cats and are happy to have made this tour and have gotten Ash as a wonderful guide.

We had a guided tour with Ash earlier this week and just wanted to thank him for being so lovely. We saw a couple of lions, a cheetah, leopard and some other cats. We had a great tour with Ash, he was funny and left us with so much knowledge!

We had the hourly tour and it was very informative. Dan was our guide and he clearly knew the animals well. It is sad that these animals cannot be rehabilitated but nice that they get to live out their lives in comfort. We went in the middle of the day so of course all the cats were sleeping - but very happy to be photographed! This place does wonderful work and it is nice to be able to support it whilst having a good time. A great place to visit!

Had a wonderful tour by this dedicated team of staff at Tenikwa. It was great to see the lions, cats, meerkats leopard and cheetah. Thank you Dan and everybody on how kind and caring you are not just towards the animals but also for looking after me when I overheated in the sunshine. Very embarrassing but I didn’t want to cut short our tour, so appreciate the time you took for me to cool off before we carried on the tour. We wish you all well in the future for your centre. Please visit this sanctuary and support them if you in the area.
