Cheetah's Rock Questions & Answers

Newcastle, England.

Hi

My husband and myself are visiting cheetahs rock on the 16th of October. We are really looking forward to it and feel privileged to be up close with these beautiful animals.

I think I know the answer but I take it these beautiful animals are not forced to interact it they don't want to.

Look forward to seeing you soon.

Dear Shirley.

At Cheetah’s Rock, the wild animals get to decide if, and how much, they like to interact with you.

We never, ever force any animal to interact with you if it doesn’t want to do so on its own will.

We keep in mind the safety of our wild animals and of you guests.

So the kind of interaction is limited by these core concerns. While you can feed Aslan the genuine white lion his healthy snacks of meat through the safety barrier, you can enter the enclosures of other wild animals and have the bush baby monkeys or the ringtailed lemurs scamper on your shoulder, for example, if they are in the mood to do so – again, they get to decide always what they want to do.

Looking forward to welcome you at Cheetah‘s Rock

It’s not that sort of centre. Jenny will explain this. It’s all about the animals , it’s not about you.

Absolutely not - jenny says at the beginning of the safety briefing that "you can't touch the animals but they can touch you if they want to"

There is obviously some training that has been done but it really is in a loving way and no pressure is put on any animal to do anything.

It really has been the highlight of my trip to zanzibar you will love it.

Hi Shirley, if you think it’s „ natural „ for a Zebra to perform „ circus tricks „ then I suppose they are of its own free will . NOT !
