Good afternoon Samuel, It's sad to note that the moment you realized we are a zoological facility you were disappointed. That says a lot about the negative stigma and bias historic zoos, and many zoos still today, have placed on facilities like ours. The focus...More

Hi. There were four of us in the group and we all had a go at stroking the cheetah individually and then as a couple. I think we were in the enclosure for about 40 minutes. An amazing experience. Well worth it!

There is no need to book in advance as they have tours every 30 minutes. You might want to stay for 2 nights though so you can visit the Cango Caves & one of the Ostrich farms too.
