Personal message

On 27 March 2020,  lockdown was implemented due to the worldwide epidemic, COVID-19, it threatens the closure of a 35-year-old business. But as you know, we are not just a business, we are a family. Our animals are our family and we have dedicated our lives to them and their care.

Even though some of South Africa’s COVID-19 Lockdown restrictions have been lifted, our industry remains closed and therefore  without income. We have cut our running costs as much as we can without impacting animal welfare, and have had to temporarily let go off more than 60% of our staff, due to this.

The owners have always cared deeply for our staff and community. As one of the largest employers in the region, their decisions and endeavours have always benefitted the local community and tourism industry. Whether or not our facility is open, our commitment to our animals, employees, and community remains. Despite the costs, our animals deserve and are given the best care attainable. Right now, we are in dire need of financial aid we need to raise funds to keep our family cared for.

Your donation can help save animal lives.

Yours truly,

Cango Wildlife Ranch on behalf of our Animal Family
