Unexpected experience with wolves
Oct 2020 • Couples
Educational and guides makes it a personal and remembarable. For an extra donation you can, in a small group, pet young wolves. Animals are well adjusted and playful when being handled.

Only by appointment during COVid, but office response is very quick.

Awesome!

Very friendly and enthusiast staff who love their job, beautiful environment as well! They know what they talk about, very interessting. Never came so close to (a lot of) wolves, awesome.. Also no commercial b****it, they dont want to make money out of it, everything they do is to help the animals getting a good life. (non profit) Keep up the good work and thanks for the very nice visit!

Great camp for wolfs
Aug 2017 • Couples
Camp was an short visit worth , looking into the work being done to preserve wolves in south africa
Basic environment, nice in the nature where about 30 wolves live , in different clans with also some hybrids form the stupid wolve 'market'

Admire the will to keep this up in such basic conditions

Worth a short (60') visit and spend some time there

Surprisingly fun
Dec 2016 • Family
I love wolves, so I was distressed to see them sad looking, and in dismal enclosures. This is a sanctuary where rescued, sick and injured wolves are cared for. Kudos to the carers.
The rest of the place is more of an interactive animal farm, and brought out the excitable toddler in all of us😄. It was great family fun.

Interesting
Oct 2016 • Solo
Visited the sanctuary to find out if it was as bad as some people say and it was quite the opposite. Found it very well run and very interesting due my lack of knowledge of the specie. Visitors musn't excpect a 5 star facility as it is run on a limited budget by volenteers who are doing a very good job.

Something you won't forget
Sep 2016
I was never really crazy about wolfs, but this caught my interest. It's definitely something I can recommend, it was about R150 if you go in for the normal no-guide tour and R175 with a guide. We did the R175 because then you get to touch some of the wolfs which is a must. Seeing them with a fence between you is just not the same as having them walk around you and touching them. The place was well kept and smelled fine, and the guide was also friendly and informative.

On a side note they also have farm animals like chicken, pigs, peacocks, cows, ponies, donkeys and more. This was also kind of fun, but the wolfs are what make the place.

Not great, just okay
Aug 2016 • Family
So after visiting the wolf sanctuary in Plettenberg Bay and not being impressed this one did not go any better. Firstly when you park the ticket booth is closed. A board indicates hoot twice, which we did but nothing happened. Then when you follow the boards you get to reception. Not the most enthusiastic of welcomes. More wolfs but also same small enclosures and sad looking wolfs. No restaurant or baby changing facilities. One small wolf pup running around which was very playful and could be touched.

A dream come true
May 2016 • Friends
I've always wanted to see and interact with wolves, and my trip to the Tsitsikamma Wolf Sanctuary finally afforded me that opportunity. It is humbling and inspiring to see how hard the staff and volunteers work to care for these misunderstood creatures, and to educate the public regarding wolves and wolfdog hybrids. This is a worthy cause deserving of support.

Nice activity for Family & Kids
Jun 2015 • Family
I have pasted this area many times before and never thought of doing the tour. On one such day I decided to take the kids along ( 8/12 yrs ) & experience the encounter with the wolves.It was not all that great but did enjoy the educational part of the tour. The wolves are huge animals, they did not appear vicious like in the movies. Them being in an enclosure, they looked tame.Not as I had imagined in real life. Most of them kept to themselves during that part of our visit ,hiding in their wolf cave /bunker. I think our timing was wrong. Perhaps we should have popped in over feeding time. There are many other farm animals that also form part of this sanctuary.This made the excursion a little bit more worthwhile as the kids could interact with them. The billy goats are the nicest of them all. The question then begs , How often do you get to see wolves in this natural habitat. Take the visit & support wild life. Curio , coffee shop and cafe is also onsite.
