VIP Experience


Activity Description

You will be met by your own personal guide who will take you on a private tour of the facility, whichever option you choose. Thereafter you will be taken to do the natural encounters of your choice. What makes these natural encounters special is that you’ll get to spend more time with the animal than usual.
What makes the VIP tours so special is that you get to see what we (and the animals) get up to behind the scenes! It is an opportunity not to be missed and for most a lifechanging eye-opener of why we do what we do here at Cango Wildlife Ranch…

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.
