Holiday for Impy & Zulu as Cheetah Run goes under construction

The parks most famous animals Impy & Zulu (stars of the Discover Ireland adverts) are taking a mini holiday as the cheetah run goes under construction for three weeks.

As part of our new 4 million redevelopment project we are currently doing a lot of work on our new entrance area, this includes the current cheetah run area so we have to close it for three weeks from June 30th. This means that Impy & Zulu the two sisters will have to move over to the other cheetah at the opposite side of the african savannah.
