The Garden Route and the Little Karoo Sights

Cango Wildlife Ranch

  • Zoo/Aquarium

Fodor's 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. In addition to 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 (R340), which isn't as bizarre as it sounds: it's not really diving as you can stand up for a breath of air whenever you feel the need.
