Tenikwa Awareness Centre

Tenikwa is located in the rural area outside Plettenberg Bay on the pristine Garden Route in the Western Cape, known for its many natural attractions, protected National Parks, and neighbouring animal sanctuaries.

Tenikwa offers various, small group programs throughout the day, catering for all ages and fitness levels with a focus on providing a conservation-based, informative tour. Guests are charmed by the sincerity of Tenikwa, the friendliness of our staff and the way in which Tenikwa's passion for conservation shines through.

A variety of indigenous birds, such as Blue Cranes, Marabou Storks and waterfowls frequent the gardens of Tenikwa, the extent of which covers some 8ha with the balance of the 46ha set aside for the wild animals occurring in the area.

Whether you visit us for a day, or for an hour, , “Come with an Open Mind, Tread with a Lighter Step, Leave with a Change of Heart”
