Cango Wildlife Ranch is internationally recognised as one of South Africa’s premier tourism attractions. Conveniently situated en route to the Cango Caves near Oudtshoorn, the Ranch offers visitors a huge variety of awe-inspiring activities at one location for a value-packed price – suitable for the whole family and open 365 days a year! In addition to our wonderful encounter programs, where you can meet an ambassador cheetah, the ranch also offers two Firsts: Lemur Falls – the first interactive Lemur experience in Africa! - and Crocodile Cage Diving - a World First - where you can test your mettle against the dangerous gaze of a Nile Crocodile via a steel cage lowered into their watery domain! As a PAAZA (Pan-African Association of Zoos and Aquaria) accredited facility, a proud member of WAZA(World Association of Zoos and Aquariums), and a multiple winner of TripAdvisor's Certificate of Excellence, Cango Wildlife Ranch remains a unique world-class facility which strives to provide conservation through education by means of various conservation projects, initiatives and informative guided tours! A significant percentage of all proceeds go straight back into our conservation initiatives providing you with ethical and unforgettable fun and memories. For unlimited adventure for the whole family – visit Cango Wildlife Ranch!

This is one of the best wildlife ranches we have been to with so much to see. Cheetah, lions, lemurs, tigers, white tigers snakes, crocs and a lot more. The best thing was the facility was well maintained no place was there a bad smell....More

The Cheetah experience was really neat. All in all for R300 we had a great tour and with a knowledgeable guide. The animals all looked in great condition too.. These people are doing good work! Keep it up

We visited the Cango Wildlife Ranch in July 2017 and found it interesting and enjoyable. The ideal place for an educational outing with the children, as there are guided tours of less than a hour, where the guide provides interesting facts about the various animals...More
