Chehaw’s Zoo is home to 238 specimens representing 87 different species. Enjoy natural, outdoor exhibits including Cheetahs, Black Rhinoceros’, Meerkats, Black Bears, Alligators, and many more, while you stroll through our scenic boardwalks and cypress swamp. Participate in animal feedings and keeper talks every weekend. Chehaw’s African Veldt Ride is free with admission, and will take you through our largest exhibit where seven different species roam in natural herds. Chehaw’s Zoo is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). To be accredited, zoos must undergo a thorough investigation to ensure that they have met, and will to continue to meet, ever-rising standards. These standards encompass animal care, veterinary programs, conservation, education, and safety. AZA requires zoos and aquariums to successfully complete this rigorous accreditation process every five years.

The Cheetah Conservation Fund strives to prevent cheetah population decline in its natural habitat. Through education and by implementing beneficial programs for native people, CCF promotes predator-friendly livestock management techniques with farmers whose animals may be targeted by wild cheetahs.
