Cheetah's Rock, Zanzibar Island

4.8
Must see · Nature / Park · Wildlife Area
Interact with a cheetah, watch the feeding of a white lion, and shake

hands with ring-tailed lemurs at Cheetah's Rock, an animal sanctuary on

the east coast designed for close interaction with visitors. Run by a

licensed animal trainer, this establishment keeps rescued or donated

animals, making them available for a close-up view and personal

interaction in many cases. Highlights include rare striped hyenas, a

football-playing zebra, and young cheetah brothers received from a

CITES accredited conservation center. The place does not accept visitors

under 15, and you are advised not to wear any overpowering perfume or

aftershave that could irritate the animals. Reserve your place in advance

due to the attraction's popularity. Work out when and for how long to visit Cheetah's Rock and other Zanzibar City attractions using our handy Zanzibar City road trip website.
