Additional information

What's Included

It's time to leave the fences behind and meet cheetahs up close and personal! Wildlife Safari cheetahs are here to help spread their message of conservation and education. Pose for photos with cheetahs at Wildlife Safari, America's most successful cheetah breeding program!

What's not Included

Animal Enrichment Encounters do not include regular Drive Through admission, which is required to participate in Enrichment Encounters.

Cheetahs up close are not hands-on encounters, but will allow you within 6 feet of a Wildlife Safari cheetah.

How long does this adventure last?

Animal Enrichment Encounters last between 20 and 30 minutes, depending on the number of people registering for the encounter. Encounters will not be cut short while there are still questions, or while the keeper staff is still educating the public.


While Cheetah Photo Encounters don't fill up, calling no more than 2 days ahead can help guarantee your space on an encounter. Give Wildlife Safari a call any time during business hours to speak with a guest services representative at 541.679.6761.
