National Zoo & Aquarium


Meet the three new Cheetah Boys

The National Zoo & Aquarium are delighted to announce the arrival of three Cheetah boys from South Africa. The cubs arrived in the middle of the 2021 Covid-19 lockdown in the ACT and quickly settled in. Now the three brothers, Asani, Zambi and Viking are ready to meet you in an incredible limited-time encounter. You will enter the enclosure with the three unrestrained Cheetah cubs and get to have a hands on experience meeting this bachelor group!

At all times an experienced Zoo Keeper will be with you to answer your questions and guide you as you interact with these incredible animals. A maximum of 2 people go into the cheetah enclosure with the Keeper per session, and sessions last for approximately 10-15 minutes.

They were born October 2020
