  • We had scheduled a visit to the Wichita, KS area to visit another attraction. Having some time on our hands or friends suggested we also visit Tanganyika Wildlife Park. We had never heard of the place...  read more »

  • We got to interact with lots of animals. I got to pet a kangaroo for the very first time. We also rode on a camel and fed a hippo and a giraffe up close and personal! There was a brand new baby alpaca...  read more »
  • Wayy better than the big zoo !! Not as big but that's fine cause it be to hot out side to walk the big zoo this one is big but not as big. And some animals are not in cages. It's pretty cool and then you get to pet the kangaroos !! That was real fun and my babies enjoyed it besides the heat and another thing i liked they served beer but wish they served wine coolers or something like margaritas lol. And we even bought a cup and refills were 75 cents i thought was okay. I'd go back !
  • What a wonderful experience. The park is built to be fairly open, which means in most cases the only thing separating you from the animals is a moat or large ditch. This gives the park a very open feel. They have a very wide assortment of animals including some beautiful tigers and a Lemur island where you can pay a few dollars to feed them. Some enclosures did seem a bit small for the animals and they could be seen visibly pacing, but most were very well designed. The employees were knowledgeable and noticeably cared about what they do and how the animals were treated. This place is worth the drive and every cent of the admission.
  • I am so disappointed that I have not visited Tanganyika Wildlife Park until now. What have I been waiting for? This place is tremendous! It must be a labor of love running a private zoo and Tanganyika management does a winning job. I pushed my friend, and elderly lady in a wheelchair, all over the handicapped friendly park. Kangaroos, Rhinos, Giraffes, Lemurs are just a few of the critters you can get hands on with and feed. The zoo keepers are college educated and are experts in their fields. If you go, you will never forget getting close to these beautiful animals.
  • This park is never a disappointment. It is a little more pricey than the county zoo, but a season pass pays for itself after just a few visits. The park is clean and well manicured, and the staff is always friendly and helpful. But best of all, the animals are lively and interactive. I have never been to a zoo with so much activity! It is a gorgeous, unique experience and I recommend it for everyone!
  • They have white tigers, red kangaroos, and ring-tailed lemurs here!!! You can give the lemurs Craisins but it's kinda expensive to feed them. One of my favorite things about the park though is that there is an aviary where you carry a cup of sugar water and the birds rest on your arm and drink it up! One bad thing about the park is that there is hardly any shade on a hot day, so come early or on a cloudy day. Even so, this is an awesome park!!!
