Always such fun to visit Cango Wildlife with my granddaughter of 2 - who love everything about this excellent family adventure - touching animals - the food and don't forget the chips is her favorite, the playpark and farm animals. We always have so much fun. The nice thing is my yearly pass which I always make sure I have it - perfect for the family with young kids.

We arrived an hour before closing time and were assigned to guide ED. What struck me about all the staff who worked here is their absolute true passion for the animals which they are rehabilitating and educating as many people as possible about. I truly respect this ranch and what they are doing for these animals! Our experience was amazing as we chose to interact with the animals which was well worth it! Lemurs and croc cage diving. Bucket list items. Definitely worth the visit.

Ed was a very interesting and entertaining tour guide. He was well informed and shows a passion for his job.
The route was relatively wheelchair accessible but in our extreme case at times towards the end was very difficult

What a gem in Oudtshoorn! The most amazing experience for kids, the wildlife in excellent condition, staff incredible and so knowledgeable. The encounter with the Limas was so much, and a walk through the bird enclosure made for many laughs! Do the tour for the full experience. An essential visit whilst in Oudtshoorn!
