Tsitsikamma Wolf Sanctuary, also known as “The Wolf Sanctuaryâ€, is a non-profit organisation aimed at looking after the welfare of a variety of wolves. It is situated 10.5 km from the Storms River bridge towards Port Elizabeth (or 17km from the Eersterivier/Kareedouw turnoff coming from Port Elizabeth) along the Garden Route in the Tsitsikamma region of the Eastern Cape.
The aim of the sanctuary is to provide refuge for a range of wolves and to educate people about these magnificent animals. While here, visitors can admire the beautiful pattern of the African Wild Dog, discover the intelligence of the Black Backed Jackal, and interact with a variety of farm animals.
The sanctuary boasts over 20 grey wolves, including the Canadian Timber Wolf. They live in separate enclosures, known as dens, and have formed family packs. As there are no guided tours and no time limit, you can spend the day browsing the comprehensive information boards around the park. Night tours are available on request.
The facilities consist of a braai area and picnic tables where you can enjoy a packed picnic, a curio shop with “wolfâ€ merchandise, and a sound room that operates in 3 different languages (English, Afrikaans, and German).
