What a unique experience. It's a zoo of sorts, but much better if you want to get up close with animals. All the staff we encountered were super friendly, explaining everything about the animals and the park in general. It's small and compact and great for younger kids especially. You can feed and pet a number of animals which is pretty cool. Pricing may seem high, but without "public" support it's going to be (in this way it's not like a typical zoo).
It's pretty expensive for what it is. You really don't need more than 2.5-3 hours or less to get through the whole park (depending on lines). Everything is extra - general admission only allows you to feed one animal and I felt that was misleading from what I knew about the park before attendance. You can't even photograph the lemurs without paying extra. All the extras were misleading. I think the zoo is better for the money, and we went when admission was 40% off. Feeding a giraffe was neat.
The animals seemed so happy there. They had nice big enclosures, and they actually loved the attention that they got from the hands on activities you can do. I absolutely love animals, and to see them so happy, made me happy. Also the staff are super nice. They were kind to the animals and to the people there. I definitely recommend this place as a nice way to spend the day.
Great place to see and interact with animals that you don't see at larger zoos. The ly do a lot of breeding so they always have some sort of babies or little animals. The only drawback is since it is a private zoo get ready for a higher ticket price. They have a lot of interactions with animals ( more than most zoos), however they all have a cost associated.
Joe with brown hair & beard is at least 5'8 and is not a good worker. He rushed my family out of the lemur feeding with an annoyed and aggressive tone when we were barely in there. During our extremely short time in there, we asked him to take a picture of the children feeding the lemurs & based off his body language, he showed no effort or interest while doing so. He made the lemur feeding unenjoyable for the children as well as for the adults as viewers. Tanganyika wildlife park is a great place and we were having fun until our experience with Joe. I would've rated this place 5 stars but Joe who appears to be lazy and rude messed that up.
