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!

It was a pleasure to had the chance to go to the Cango Wildlife Ranch. It was a great place to show us all the animals there. It was not like the wide ranch, and it might look really average, but at least we got some good times there in viewing some animals. The tour guide was also nice and polite. Not really the best one, but still OK for me. There were also some food counters and a restaurant there.

This is not a Zoo but a experience to get close to wild animals and learn more about them and learn more about the the CHEETAHS and the breeding program they got for the CHEETAHS
It is also child friendly.wheelchair and every body friendly the GUIDES are very good and the experience to go in and touch a CHEETAH or WHITE BENGAL TIGER can't be described in words.
This is the only place that I now of with a restaurant where you can get a BURGER in??? Beef, Crocodile, Chicken or Ostridge man and I mean A BURGER.

We had a very nice tourguide. We enjoyed the entire tour through the Range. My grandchildren enjoyed all the animals they saw at the Range. We had soft drinks at the shop situatedin the Ranch. Must add that the fee we had to pay to enter the Range we very expensive it cost us for 4 adults 1 kid under 5 about R 600 +. So you must be prepair when you go to the Cango Wildlife Ranch.
