Cango Retreat surrounded by lush green trees. Friendly farm animals around. Beautiful scenery, close to a river. The hosts are friendly and helpful. Mattress was a bit hollow. Situated close to the Cango Caves.

The hospitality is beyond compare, the facility is an enjoyment for the soul, its peaceful and quiet yet the kids can enjoy themselves making use of the kayaks and tubes to swim in the crystal clear river. For the avid fisherman there is Rainbow trout in abundance in the the river. The hiking trail along the river is an easy comfortable walk, can be done in slipslops but would not advise as Oudtshoorn is known for Cape cobra and puff adders, but fishing and swimming in the pools along the walk is a must. The lights that is switched on at night leaves a sense off peacefulness with the different colors all along the facilities, this can be viewed from either the swing benches or the hammocks right next to the flowing water of the river. More peaceful than that you cant get. This is a must see facility for any person. The facility does have an onsite resaurant but the sell catering cabins is perfect and gives you the home away from home feeling. Our treat was the fact that the animals are as friendly as the owners. We walked the hiking trail led by 9 different dogs a billy goat and a diker what a joy. We will be visiting Cango retreat soon again.
