Cheetah Territory has been meticulously designed to faithfully replicate the expansive natural habitat of these magnificent creatures. It boasts a diverse landscape adorned with lush grasses and towering trees, creating a verdant oasis that mirrors the cheetahs' native surroundings. Additionally, carefully curated rocky outcrops and sandy enclaves have been incorporated, providing perfect spots for the cheetahs to unwind and bask under the sun.

Covering an impressive expanse exceeding 10,000 square metres, which equates to approximately 2.5 acres, the reserve is divided into three distinct sections. Each section has been thoughtfully designed to accommodate the cheetahs' specific needs and preferences. The reserve features separate accommodations for the male and female cheetahs, ensuring their comfort and well-being are prioritised in this carefully planned environment.
