Cango Wildlife Ranch
Cango Wildlife Ranch Review
The name Cango Wildlife Ranch is a bit misleading, as this is really just a glorified zoo, crocodile farm, and cheetah-breeding center, but it is great fun—especially for children. As well as the crocodiles and cheetahs, you may see white Bengal tigers and lions in large pens. Other attractions include a snake park, pygmy hippos, a tropical house with birds and giant fruit bats: in short, loads of different animals that will keep the little ones amused for ages. You can even do a croc cage dive (R220), which isn't as bizarre as it sounds: it's not really diving, as you are separated from the croc by glass and can stand up for a breath of air whenever you feel the need. For an extra fee (R145 to R300), you can cuddle one of the resident beasts (cheetahs, lions, pythons). The price, which includes a photograph, depends on the species you choose.
