Meet a cub

Meet our one-year-old, 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 different 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 morning walk with their keepers through the zoo’s pine forest with lots of opportunities for interactions.

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