Cango Wildlife Ranch | Premium Ticket (Excludes Croc Feed)

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 photofolder, 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.

Incredible experience with wild animals. We share face to face with cheetah. Amazing. The park has a lot of well care animals, including leopard, lions, crocodile and others. Guides were very gently and take care of us meanwhile we were inside with cheetah. Recommended for every family with child over 14.

It's a nice Zoo with a lot of different animals. But my highlight was the dive with the crocodiles. This is super cool!! Nice clear water and the crocodile is coming real close to the cage. perfect to take good pictures!

Brilliant Guides. Excellent interaction activities with the animals. Well organized but busy. Be patient. The one and only time having a Python around my neck and then into a cage with crocs. Loved the Cheetahs and monkeys.

Definitely a must visit. The enclosures are very well laid out and clean. All aninals seem to be well fed and in good health. Lots of animals to see and encounters to experience. We wanted to go crocodile cage diving. After we paid and geared up we were informed that the previous group were unsuccessful, so we got our full refund. We bought an annual ticket so we'll try again some other time. The guides are well informed and very friendly. Best to be there early as they open and experience the animals when it's not too hot. Best to feed the birds before 11:00 as they become a bit lethargic late afternoon in the summer months.

Great tour guides, great experience, great food 👌! There is an array of different animals at this Ranch. It is wonderful what they are doing to preserve some wildlife that is endangered. It includes experiences where you can go into cages with the animals or the water with the crocodiles. One of the best experiences was seeing the white tiger 🐅🐯 Was very entertaining to see the meerkats play with each other. Wherever you are from this is a definite place to visit. I can guarantee you will enjoy it and it will be worth the money.
