  • Loved my visit to this wildlife ranch. 180 Rand was good value. The places is clean and tidy with nice walk ways. The most important thing was the great array of varied animals and reptiles who all looked well looked after and happy and healthy. The staff were very helpful and very knowledgeable. Highly recommended. Well done to the Ranch for their good work.
  • Visiting the park was an absolutely amazing experience. We had a fantastic guide(Samantha) who was exceptionally knowledgeable about all the animals and made the experience breathtaking. We got to see so many animals! To top everything off we had lunch at their restaurant and it was one of the best meals my family and I have ever had, our waitress Amy was so great her sense of humor was greatly appreciated. We really will be back and will bring the entire family.
  • We bought the VIP2 experience and we absolutely loved it. We decided to do this as part of our honeymoon, my husband was a little dubious about it but in the end he loved it. The staff were fantastic, it was great to have a private tour and see how the food was prepared for the animals, great to see the medical centre and we loved being able to be close to the lemurs and cheetahs. Would definitely recommend this to any animals lovers! SO much information learnt on the day too.
  • The Cango Wildlife Ranch is an educational spectacle for everyone to enjoy. I found the facilities for the array of mammals, avians, and reptiles to be thoughtful, and refreshing with a design easily navigable. A noted appreciation for all the staff who demonstrated a deep, and varied knowledge, and compassion for these very unique, and endangered animals. A very special thanks to Samantha who guided me through the the Ranch,and took the time necessary which made my visit a memorable experience !
  • We had an amazing afternoon at the Ranch with very professional and informative guides who highlighted the plights of various endangered species and the role we can play in helping to conserve the wonderful wildlife we are so privileged to share the planet with!! The Lemur and Snake encounters were 2 of the highlights rounded with delicious Tramezzini's, chips and milkshakes at Turtles restaurant! Wish we could have spent longer there but we were on our way to George!!
