Jenny dedicated her entire adult life to animals. Founded in 2014, Cheetah’s Rock started as a small rescue center for wild animals and has grown ever since. Now we take care of animals as large as Aslan the white lion (300kg!), as small as bushbabies and anything in between! We are working tirelessly to give our animals a loving home as well as the perspective of a later release into the wild whenever this is possible.
“You only protect what you love and you only love what you know”
The welfare and happiness of our animals is paramount! Hence, we ask our guests to be loving and respectful to our animals at all times, whilst listening to their guide. We kindly ask people to refrain from booking a tour if they are not willing to show respect towards our animals, other guests and our staff members.
The animals love being around us and see us as an enrichment to their daily lives! However, they have and we admire their free spirit and we will never force any animal into an encounter with humans. We do not drug, defang or declaw our wild animals. Thus, for your safety, if an animal grows too big or dangerous, we decrease the degree of interaction.
