MEET THE STAR OF SHILEY'S CHEETAH RUN

 

CHEETAH SAFARI

Cheetah Safari offers reserved, trackside seating at the Safari Park’s afternoon Shiley's Cheetah Run, where a cheetah whooshes by—just feet away—in hot pursuit of a mechanical lure. Before the cat makes its entrance, you’ll be treated to a private up-close encounter with another African animal. And after our cheetah star has finished his or her sprint, the large cat and its trainer will come over for an exclusive meet-and-greet opportunity. Have your camera ready! Cheetah Safari is available only through advance registration, and space is limited.
