Safety Protocol


We offer many cheetah experiences, shaped by our animals’ different personalities and preferences. For all experiences, guests will be accompanied and will need to follow the safety protocols we have in place.


Unfortunately, wild cats don’t respond well to children. For this reason, we do not allow children under the age of 16 years on tour. This is for their own safety as well as the welfare of our animals.
