Australia Zoo's four resident cheetah have had a sneaky first peek at the plains of our new savannah in time for the opening of Africa in September.
Cleo, Foxy, Sheeba and Echo checked out their new neighbours in what is set to become Australia Zoo's largest exhibit, including rhinos and Queensland's only giraffes and zebras. Head of Africa, Manu Ludden, said the cheetah are thrilled with the new surroundings. "The cats are amazed at the new sights and smells of the savannah," Manu said. "Cleo in particular is very curious, exploring every inch of the new area. She is especially pleased with the watering hole and African Boabab tree!"
Stage One of Australia Zoo's Africa development plans will give visitors the opportunity to watch the animals interacting in the only multi-species African exhibit in Queensland from the comfort of our Safari Shuttle.
