About Cango Wildlife Ranch

Experience the thrill of being almost tooth-to-tooth with a Nile crocodile or wrap yourself with a python at the Cango Wildlife Ranch and Valley of Ancients in the heart of the Little Karoo!

Far more than just a petting zoo, this endangered species breeding facility is the oldest and largest cheetah contact centre on the planet. Visitors have the opportunity of interacting with hand-reared cheetahs as well as getting actively involved in conserving endangered species.

Take a stroll on the ‘catwalk’ and view lion, cheetah, puma, white Bengal tigers, meerkats, pygmy hippos and many bird species. You can also visit rare and rather large reptiles at the snake park and crocodile pools.

Run the race against extinction whilst having the time of your life and get involved with the Cheetah Preservation Foundation. Founded in 1988, the principal aim is to ensure the survival of the cheetah and other endangered species, as well as educating visitors as to the plight of the these animals.

Went to Cango Ranch as the Caves were fully booked and was reluctant to go but our 13 year old had seen the signs. It was a lovely surprise with really helpful and informative staff, well looked after animals and a nice atmosphere. Well done as this is hard to achieve in parks like this.

What an awesome day we had. Hubby dived with crocodiles and myself and the kids had an encounter with two white tigers. We also did the tour of the ranch with a very knowledgable tour guide. Would highly recommend it!!

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Cango Wildlife Ranch. Don't be put off by the fairly steep admission fee as it is extremely good value for money. All the animals look very content and well cared for and the staff are very attentive to both their animals and their visitors. The layout of the enclosures is very professional and I enjoyed walking along the raised wooden walk ways which ensure you get a good view of the animals. I loved seeing the large fruit bats, the lemurs and the large cats in particular. Highly recommended.
