About Us

Our Mission

The Tsitsikamma Wolf Sanctuary supports the survival of the wolf around the world by:

  • Putting plans in place to preserve a healthy genetic strain outside its natural domain.
  • Teaching about its life and its association with other species.
  • Its dynamic relationship with humans.
  • Provision of a sanctuary and ultimately a “natural habitat” for captive wolves.
  • Public education on the value of ALL wildlife.
  • The importance of not removing animals from their natural domain.
  • The importance of ending hybridizing (cross-breeding).

Our Sanctuary

At the Sanctuary we try to provide our wolves with an environment as close to their natural habitat as is possible in the South African Climate. It is actually too hot for wolves here but as they are highly adaptable animals they do especially well in the cooler areas of our country.


The Sanctuary is situated on 22.7 hectares of land, housing the enclosures, with adjoining veterinary isolation camps.


The vegetation is lush and we remove as little of the natural ferns and trees as possible thereby still providing our animals with privacy, but at the same time affording interested parties the opportunity of QUIETLY studying them.


Ultimately, the rehabilitated packs will be moved to their natural habitat, as and when funds allow, but the sanctuary will be open as a rehabilitation center and home for unwanted “pets”.


The Tsitsikamma Wolf Sanctuary is a self-funded private project. Our outreach, educational programs, and sanctuary are supported by donations, the sale of tickets and merchandise.

Tsitsikamma Wolf Sanctuary is NOT affiliated or linked in any way to any other wolf sanctuaries in South Africa.

Tsitsikamma Wolf Sanctuary was the first Wolf Sanctuary in South Africa and is registered with Nature Conservation.
