  • Patting cheetahs at the National Zoo & Acquarium

    We went for a 'Meet a Cheetah' session at the zoo. It was an unforgettable experience. There were 3 cheetahs in the enclosure and each session lasts for 15 mins, and only 2 people are allowed at a time. There were supervising keepers of course. It was an amazing experience patting these big cats.

    Even though expensive, it's not something that you get to do all the time. A gift voucher would make a lovely present for someone.

    The zoo also does tours where you can hand-feed tigers, lions and bears.

    The zoo is definitely worth a visit even if you do not go for one of the expensive activities. It is well-maintained and you get to see animals up close. The animals look happy and relaxed . The otters and penguins are extremely cute.
