Cheetah's Rock, Zanzibar Reviews

  • I can't even put in words how happy I am to have gone to this amazing place! Jenny is fantastic and her dedication and passion for animals and conservation is contagious. I don't support zoos and this is really a sanctuary (I'm only saying this because some of the reviews mentioned "zoo"). Experience of interacting with animals was beyond words! Jenny also introduced a lot of interesting facts about different species. Truly an amazing experience! Thank you, Jenny!

  • It’s a must see in Zanzibar! It may sound overpriced but it’s definitely worth the money. The staff and the chef take such a good care of the animals and try to provide conservation. You will get lots of interaction with the animals and great photos. If you are going with your own car, be sure to get some directions from the driver since the place is not easy to find. Locals might also help you out.

  • Jenny's heart and mission are in the right place and I would recommend a visit (particularly if you support wildlife preservation). I understand that from the outside looking in people can perceive the experience as "zoo-like", but I can assure you it is anything but... Jenny loves her animals (and animal welfare and conservation in general), and that much is abundantly clear. Again, I do not support zoo's in any way, shape, or form, and if I felt that this place was that then I'd be delivering a far different review. Cheetah Rock (along with Jenny and her staff) are purely an avant-garde way to educating the public, and supporting wildlife preservation and conservation in a different way (especially in a world like ours today where the circumstances are so dire). Cheetah Rock is worth the mission and the price, no doubt about it.

  • An animal shelter where you can feed and pet the animals. It's nice, though groups are pretty large so everything takes time. Eventually still animals are kept in pretty small cages .. educationally I guess it's worthwhile

  • Jenny's work with wild animals is simply amazing. Truly inspiring. She has true love and compassion for those who share this planet with us. At Cheetah's Rock, you will get close to the animals the centre shelters and you will learn to better understand them. Definitely the no. 1 place to visit and support in Zanzibar
