One place you should not drive pass. The most wonderful animals especially the amazingly beautiful vultures. I did not know that these birds are so very beautiful.

I went with a small tour group and after experiencing all the beautiful animals in their 'homes' I chose to meet a white tiger. She was 19 months old and so soft with huge paws and a big mouth with a very long raspy tongue and bright blue eyes. I fell in love. Many of the animals go into breeding... More

A very well kept place where animals are roaming in their respective areas and are alert.. Unlike the other ranches in the world where the animals are injected and kept low that that they are easy to handle when getting clicked with the tourist. Here we even saw the cheetah sleeping high up on the tree and the same cheetah... More

I visited this the Cango Wildlife Ranch in August 2013 with my family during my South African holidays! This place is a nice location to come across African wild animals! It is kind of a south african zoo where you get a chance of seeing lion, cheetah, tiger, snakes, bats, crocodiles and a lot more! It was nice to visit... More

I was very skeptical about visiting this place as it seemed from the adverts to be a gross tourist attraction. Yes there we're sound effects and corny jokes from the guide but overall it was fun. Along side the tourist stuff they seem to do genuine wildlife preservation. Just wish that they wouldn't do the white lion stuff obviously these... More

This is a nice little zoo that has animals from the region and beyond. The guided tour was very nice and informative. This is a great place if you have kids. Also, although we didn't do it, there are various animal encounters optional. Nice place for a visit, but not extremely exciting for adults.
