We as a family with a little one got to visit the Cango Wildlife Ranch, we were met by Tammy and her staff and the entire experience was amazing. The animal encounters are worth it with the staff and animals making you feel like you belong. We love everything about Cango Wildlife Ranch. Thank you guys for an amazing experience,... More

The Wildlife Ranch was an amazing experience. The guides were knowledgeable and entertaining. We were there quite late and they were in no rush - suggesting additional things to look at and experience. We did the Cheetah petting experience which was also amazing and something my daughter will remember for ever.

Interesting well run wildlife preservation location. Lots of fun incorporated into the formal tour with the white tiger being the highlight of the visit. The crocs are also great.

A one stop shop if you want to see & hear about wildlife. A lot of information available. Did the Croc Cage Dive which was good fun. Unfortunately I found some staff unprofessional, maybe due to inadequate training or inexperienced. There were up to three people knocking around but nothing seemed together done. A shame, as they all were friendly.... More

Our guide Ronnie was excellent. Nice place to pass a couple of hours. Bird enclosure great as parrots friendly and will sit on your shoulder. Having seen lions and cheetahs in the wild it is sad seeming them in enclosures however better there than dead.

We really enjoyed the visit and it was money well spent. We took one of the guided tours when we arrived. Our guide, Levano, was very good. You could see he was very passionate about his job and also cared a lot about the animals. If you want you can have some personal interaction with some of the animals, although... More

You get to see few kinds of cheetahs and lions which in South Africa I think you can see everywhere you do safari, the tour takes around an hour, I didn't find it interesting, the only new experience is cadge swimming with the Nile crocodile.

We drove for over 5 hours to visit Cango whilst staying in South Africa....Was definitely worth it. I did the Lemar and Crocodile experiences and loved it. The crocodiles werent very active but to say that I have been within inches of a real life Nile Crocodile was amazing. Such a wide variety of animals at the ranch, like previous... More
