Cheetah Spot
Meet one of Wildlife Safari’s Ambassador Cheetahs just inside the Safari Village! Our Ambassador Cheetah’s are constantly switched out to allow off-display cheetah’s the chance to sprint and play in the cheetah drive through, so don’t worry if you see a skunk or cavy in this area instead!
