  • We have visited many zoos and this is one of our favorites. Not too big very walkable. All the animals ate outdoors( except the penguins). The staff, guides were so friendly and informative. So many.....  more »
  • This place is amazing! We found it by accident and are so happy that we did. If you love animals you won’t be disappointed. My daughter swam with the penguins and it was so cool!  more »
  • This was so neat for small kiddos. This let's you feed animals and interact with them. My kids especially enjoyed the lemurs and the hippo feeding. If you get a chance this is a very neat place to...  more »
  • Great experience! Especially for the kids! Love how interactive it is. The kids had a blast feeding animals, touching and petting animals and riding camels. We were able to get ice cream novelties for everyone in our party at the concessions right by the playground area, and take a break during our visit which was much needed. If you're going during the hot months-plan on wearing hats, dressing cool, wearing comfortable shoes and bring plenty of bottled water. The park allows you to bring in your own snacks and drinks. We always do this wherever we go as we travel in a party of 6 and it gets quite expensive for snacks and treats. And the experience is always better than food. The park is smaller than what I envisioned or expected and compared to other zoo's and parks, but honestly it doesn't fall short in any area-there is a ton to do and see packed in ever area of the park. We enjoyed our time here and honestly felt that the animals were the best looking we've seen. They seemed happy and taken care of. Will definitely go again.
  • Its not a zoo, it is indeed more of a park where you get a chance to feed and pet animals like Rabbit, Tortoise, Giraffe, goat, lemur, llama, rhino and many more. Camel ride is another highlight. Kids are definitely gonna love this place. Staffs are very nice and caring. Our kids had a wonderful time. You can bring your food and have it there. Food and snacks are available to buy as well.
  • My family purchased a season pass on their sale, which was AWESOME. We have been a few times and have loved each visit so much! There are so many things to see and do, so make sure to have plenty of time to visit! The animal encounters are so much fun. We will definitely be purchasing a 2020 season pass.
  • Our family loves Tanganyika. We got the the season pass this year and it was definitely worth it! We purchased the season pass for the whole family plus two feeder passes that are good for 5 interactions each, with the animals that they allow interactions with. The staff are all very helpful and knowledgeable. Just this last trip to the park we noticed that they also have cups you can buy for $15.00. They are good the whole season for unlimited drinks on any drink you like. This includes the slushes, smoothies and ice coffee drinks!
  • Was very excited to come here! Drove 12 hours just to visit this zoo and I loved all of it. $40 all access is not bad at all for us spending close to 4 hours here. We also did a backstage penguin tour, which I highly recommend as long as you can handle the smell of animals! Loved how interactive it is and how many different species there are. Also: Humane Certified !!! Yay!!!!
