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
