Cheetah Run

See the worlds fastest animal being fed daily in Fota Wildlife Park

Renowned for its successful breeding programme, over 200 cheetah cubs have been born in Fota since 1985. The cats are housed in a similar way to how they live in the wild - males together, with females separated - and Fota also has Ireland’s first and only Cheetah Run.

The exhibit keeps the Cheetahs active, while maintaining their wild instincts – though it can take some time for newcomers to understand how to catch their meal! Fota’s Cheetahs are fed chicken, rabbit or horsemeat. Rabbit tends to be their favourite, with richer horsemeat given out once a week.

The Cheetah Run is located next to the main entrance and is a must see if you are visitng Cork

Easter Workout with iKids

iKIDS are going to get kids working off the all the lovely easter eggs this Sunday and monday at the park

Instead of filling kids with more Chocolate this Easter Sunday & Monday we instead are helping kids to have fun getting fit with our friends from iKids in Glanmire.

iKids are committed to making a positive impact on the health and well being of children. They do this by offering activity programs which are innovative, inclusive and suitable for children of ages and ability levels.

They want to make exercise for children fun so they can develop a healthy attitude towards exercise from a young age. This is why their activities are all designed to be motivational and engaging. The principle idea behind iKIDS is a simple but effective one, make it fun and you will not only get a higher level of participation, but the children will also get more out of it.

This Easter weekend Aidan and his team from IKids will be bringing their mobile outdoors unit complete with cool dance mats to Fota Wildlife Park.  They hope to get everyone jumping around like Easter bunnies from 11am – 5pm on both days.

For more information on iKids visit their website www.interactivekids.ie
