Probably the best day I had in Zanzibar (or in my life :D). It seems pricy but believe me it is worth it. We were amazed with kindness of Jenny and guys that were giving us the tour. We had chance to learn about species, the way they live, to hear their stories and to interact. We got all the fun facts and answers to our question. It was process of learning and also experiencing. Connected with the animals and didn't feel any kind of fear thanks to the whole atmosphere. You can see that animals are cared for with love and people who work there seem passionate about it. You can also see that animals are not drugged and that you are contributing to something good!

Have to book it in advance via form on their website.
You have an option of taxi coming to pick you up. I would recommend.
I would recommend reading instructions on the website about what to wear and how to behave and just stick to it :)

Dear Misinovic,
Wow, it is amazing that your visit of Cheetah's Rock was the best day in your life. Thank you for this big praise.
Indeed, we combine the important educational aspect of the tour with your personal interaction with our wild animals.
It is always great to read that a dear visitor such as you paid close attention to all that I conveyed about wildlife conservation and animal welfare, both at Cheetah's Rock and what is needed globally.
Yes, our wild animals are at the total center of the Cheetah's Rock experience.
As we treat them all with respect - which I demand from all of you - and love, which I hope for from you, they are willing to interact with you at a very close, personal level.
Isn't it great how closely humans and wild animals can get together given the right atmosphere that we create and maintain here on Cheetah's Rock.
It is true, you have to book the tour online before you come.
Thank you for pointing out that guests should please pay close attention to our requirements regarding appropriate clothing. It is all well thought out. It is for the benefit of a wonderful time with the wild animals.
Thank you for you visit and your kind review.
All the best
Jenny
