What to Expect
Your educational close encounter experience with Jenny’s rescued wild animals lasts for about 3 3/4 hours. We start you off with a coconut drink at our reception and the mandatory safety briefing.
Afterwards, we go straight into action with a beautiful display of talent from our fantastic zebra stallion Chaka. Our experienced animal trainer Jenny will show you how 100% positive reinforcement only animal handling works. It is based on trust and rewarding only. Guests can feed, touch and get hands on with Chaka. You will also visit Maurice and Mortina, our handsome little Bush Babyies who love nothing more than a bit of attention and pasta. From here we move to our Vervet and Zanzibar Sykes monkies and our ring-tailed lemurs which are living with some more resuced anmials in harmony together.
We encourage guests to get involved with feeding these loveable critters. You have even more fun if you don’t mind getting your hands a little dirty.
Next come Gizmo and Gimmick, our very rare striped hyenas. You cannot enter their enclosure. From your side of the safety barrier, you can feed and watch them from very close by whilst we will try to change your mind about this misunderstood beautiful species.
Another exciting moment of your tour is visiting Aslan. He is a genuine white lion, not an albino. He is one of only 300 white lions in the world. Born in March 2014, he has grown up into a strong huge male. This is why you cannot enter his enclosure. You can feed him his fresh meet from your side of the safety barrier and take all the pictures of him you like. After the adrenaline of Aslan, it is time to relax with a glass (or two) of sparkling wine or water with our elegant cheetah Tyson, the ‘lord’ of Cheetah’s Rock.
While you are with Tyson, you will have a chance to ask questions and find out more about what makes Cheetah’s Rock special.
At Cheetah’s Rock we move people’s hearts and minds by introducing them to wild animals in a truly unique and magical way.
