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 Island attractions using our handy Zanzibar Island road trip website .
