Although we were doing the usual trip around the premises and although it was fantastically explained and choregraphed by the Tourguide Wilfred, I do recommend a Full Day Package or the Cheetah Walk. It is truly fantastic to know a place such as this exists and is run and orchestrated by such passionate and good hearted bunch of people. And if you are wondering 'why high rates' remember what you pay for... they need every penny to do the good job they are doing at Tenikwa!

Very nice to actually get into a number of the cages and see the different cats close up. The surroundings that the animals are in are nice and not too much like a zoo, they have plenty of natural habitat. The meerkats are SOOO great.Thought some of the extra experinces like photo shoot time with a cheetah or walking with a cheetah rather expensive.

Great fun. We took our 9 month old daughter in a backpack on the one hour tour and she was fine - still able to take her into most of the wild cat enclosures but couldn't take her into the cheetah enclosure ( understandably!) but I walked along the edge with her and still got great views. The guides were excellent. Very informative, educational and awe inspiring to be so close to the big cats. There are different packages available including sunset walks with the cheetahs which sounded amazing but over 16's only! Highly recommend.

When have you ever had the chance to have Cheetahs walking a foot away from you? What a fantastic experience. You must not miss this place.

This Wildlife Awareness Centre is absolutely Brilliant. We spent three quarters of a day there and that was not long enough. The whole set up is amazing. We did a Photographic Tour for two hours. Our ranger was excellent. His knowledge of the animals and their backgrounds was first class. His obvious love for the animals was inspiring. We had been promised great photographic opportunities and we were not disappointed. Their work with injured and orphaned animals and birds is heart lifting and some of the injuries to these poor animals brought tears to my eyes. I strongly urge every animal lover to visit this centre to appreciate exactly what they are trying to achieve. It manages to be fun and informative at the same time, not always easy to accomplish
