About Cheetah's Rock

Cheetah’s Rock is a unique place where people and animals interact directly – face-to-face, eye-to-eye, fur-to-skin. Get closer and experience the feeling of interacting with the animals with love and care! Prepare yourself for a magical, memorable, and remarkable experience. Wildlife is introduced in a really different, much closer, interactive, and more personal way. The welfare of our animals on Cheetah's Rock is paramount! Cheetah’s Rock does not identify itself as a zoo or a sanctuary, it doesn’t give itself a label either. The closest description would be a wildlife school, the Hogwarts of the four-legged world! Cheetah’s Rock trains animals through positive conditioning. Animals are asked to perform tasks and then are rewarded with praise and food. All animals are in large living spaces, are properly fed, able to exercise, and are never subjected to tranquilizers or drugs to subdue them or force them to perform. You get to see zebras, cheetahs, hyenas, Asian lions, peacocks, dic-dics, turtles, monkeys, and ring-tailed lemurs to name a few!
