Have Questions?

We will answer them!

Do we have to book a tour?

Out of season, during winter months, bookings are not essential.

Peak times during school holidays and for large group bookings are required.

Smaller family groups may arrive at will – they will be incorporated into the next tour that leaves every half hour (on average).

Reservations are made through Head Office (+27-82-956-4175) or at Reception on site.

How much is a tour?

Our pricing is available on our website, here.

How long is a tour?

The tour on average is about half an hour.  However, the more interested you are and the more questions you ask – that time could be at least 45 minutes to an hour.


You are welcome to view the wolves in the public area on your own, but we do not allow visitors to walk freely around the enclosures – for their own safety.

How long may we stay after a tour?

Day visitors are welcome to amble around the public areas at will.  So there is no rush to leave.  Browse in our “Goodie” shop and see what you can buy.  The proceeds of the sales of our pictures and other items go towards the feeding of the wolves.

How do I get to the Sanctuary?

Directions via Google Maps

Just off the N2 at the R102 (Witelsbos / Koumansbos) turnoff – after Humansdorp – before Storms River Bridge.

Only 10.5km North of the Storms River Bridge at the R102, park your vehicle in our secure parking area and enjoy a 500m scenic stroll along the Elands River Trail, towards the Wolf Sanctuary Educational Experience. Or for the not-so-adventurous, just drive up.

What are the opening hours of the sanctuary and on which days are you open to the public?

The sanctuary is open 7 days a week, but closed on Christmas Day and New Years Day.


Hours are 9:00 – 15:30


Tours begin on the half-hour, every hour: the first tour is 9:300, and the last tour is at 15:00.
