Meet a cub

Meet our newest addition, our beautiful Cheetah cub, Solo. A rare single-cub birth, Solo has been hand raised and lives with his best mate Zama, a cross Border Collie/Belgian Malinois.

Choose between 2 Encounters:

Meet a Cub – Go inside the enclosure with a Keeper and meet and play with both Solo and Zama (morning or afternoon sessions available), or Cheetah Cub Walk – Accompany Solo and Zama on their daily 30 minute morning walk with their keepers through the zoos pine forest, followed by an encounter with them as they are settled back into their enclosure.

Or meet a fully grown big cat in our daily Meet a Cheetah Encounter
