There is no good place to pet exotic animals.

You can visit a safari park or go on safari in Africa to take photos

Go to Africa and see them living free as they should be. They are not playthings put on this earth for your entertainment.

The recently opened Dubai Safari Park - http://www.dubaisafari.ae/en may have something like that - not sure.

I heard there's a great safari park in the Netherlands where you can picnic with the cheetahs.

There should be a prize for the most oxymoronic sentence, because I think we have a winner.

An exotic animal is not a pet, nor should you 'pet' one. As several eejits have found out the hard way. Such as the leopard that roamed loose around Riyadh city centre after jumping out of the car of the 'owner' at a drive-through ATM.

As Kali says, get to Africa and get the proper experience. Get into the wild, and see who pets who ;-)
