Cango Wildlife Ranch - Premium Ticket


Activity Description

Please note: The premium includes all of our special animal encounters, except cheetah cubs.
Cango Wildlife Ranch has over 90 species of animals and is open 365 days of the year!
The well-being and welfare of all our animals is paramount in the promotion of our conservation ethic to you, our valued guest.
To achieve these aims we promote the concept of Natural Encounters between you and a number of select ambassador species.
We trust that any Natural Encounter, will offer you a ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ sheer thrill, and will create everlasting memories. The contented purr and amber stare of our cheetah or a blood-pumping cage-dive with a mighty 4-meter Nile crocodile.

We hope that encounters with these magnificent creatures will encourage compassion and support in the plight that these species face on our fragile planet.

All contributions from Natural Encounters go towards the vital funding of our conservation and captive breeding programs. If you would like to become more involved in helping us to help them, we invite you to join our Cheetah Preservation Foundation (CPF) – which channels all contributions to the conservation and breeding programs both in the wild and here at the Cango Wildlife Ranch.

To ensure your special moment is never lost, our Experience Department will capture this moment on camera and present you with the option of purchasing a printed version of the photo in a photo-folder, or the collection of images on a USB drive.

To ensure you are able to participate in any one of the above-mentioned encounters, please contact us prior to your visit to enquire the availability of the encounters you may be interested in, and the dates of your visit.

Cango Wildlife Ranch is amazing. The love for animals are evident. Photos for my croc experience was a different story. Photographer focused on me and the cage. I had one pic with a croc in the background. I did follow up and was given a voucher. Now all I need to do is replan a trip from gauteng :( - Marilu van Niekerk

Cango Wildlife Ranch was the highlight of our trip along route 62. The encounters were amazing (we met the snake, lemurs and serval) and the birds and wallabies were fascinating. The staff were friendly, attentive and entertaining. Their knowledge of and care for the animals was a beautiful thing to experience. - Tameryn McLaggan
