More about Sunset Crazee Cat Day

This “crazee cat day” wildlife experience takes place near the seaside town of Plettenberg Bay, at Tenikwa Wildlife Awareness Centre. It allows visitors to spend the whole day taking part in various programs and joining the animal keepers on their daily duties. Meet the resident cats on an exclusive wildlife photographic tour where you’ll learn why these animals are struggling to survive in the wild.

Before lunch, join the animal keepers in an interesting animal enrichment exercise. Then relax with a light lunch and a complimentary glass of wine. In the afternoon, assist with grooming the cats and preparing their evening meal. The day will start and end with a cheetah walk. After a rewarding day sit back and watch the sunset with a glass of wine and snacks.

Opinions On Sunset Crazee Cat Day

What the locals say about Sunset Crazee Cat Day.

Barbara Cartwright

We had a fantastic day at Tanikwa. We did the crazy Cat Day. Had breakfast then a walk around the small cats then off to the vet clinic to talk to the vet staff and watch them feed the birds they had in rehab. A lovely lunch then visited the larger cats. A walk with a cheetah then feeding time. Our guides Mfundo and Boniwe were friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommended to anyone of any fitness level.

Tenikwa was a wonderful experience. We had a day long private tour with Ash - our very informative and friendly local guide. We began with a tour of the hospital and its patients (mostly penguins, seals, birds and small mammals), followed by visits to the individual enclosures to meet all the cats in person (serval, caracal, African wild cat, leopard, lion and cheetah), as well as birds and other creatures. Whilst they have a no touch policy, we were still able to enter the enclosures (all except the Leopard's and the Lion's) and get very close to the animals and take some great photos. The highlights for us were the Cheetah walk at the end of the day (shared with another 4 visitors) - a really memorable experience. She purred loudly all the way! The other highlights were watching the Leopard being fed at very close quarters, and hearing the Lion roar. Having visited a couple of other animal sanctuaries in the area, it was clear to us that Tenikwa was a superior operation with a well deserved reputation for care and rehabilitation . The cost to spend the whole day there was quite high, and at times it did seem that they were struggling to fill the time, but for such a good cause, we felt it was worth it and we came away with fabulous photos and memories of our visit.

We had an amazing time on our crazy cat day. Boniwe was inspiring and so warm and gentle with the animals. Sizi sorry I have spelt this wrong, was a lovely guide. It was one of the best days of our holiday in SA
