The place was underwhelming. We had to wait for almost 3 hours to rum the cheetah's back for 30 seconds. Plus they sell a Tin Tin book with a blatantly racist caricature of a black boy.

This cheetah sanctuary is very nice, mainly towards raising awareness for their animal protection through anatolian shepherds! It has a cheap entry, and we did the option to pet the cheetahs as well. This was lovely, and the workers were also very nice. I was...More
