Animal Encounters

Our Natural Encounter programs, along with our new Experience Department, offers visitors both young and old the chance to interact with a few of our ambassadors species:

At Cango Wildlife Ranch, 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.
