Cheetahs can be seen engaged in natural behaviors in a grassland setting similar to their natural savanna habitat—roaming through their habitat or sunning themselves on the gentle slopes—giving visitors a chance to closely observe these highly endangered cats. The Cheetah Conservation Station is also home to Grevy's zebras, scimitar-horned oryx, dama gazelles, and other animals.
