  • Me, myself, my fiancĂ©, our 8 month old daughter and a friend visited for the first time Wednesday. From the outside, it was my impression that it really didn't look like much. But boy, was I wrong!! W...  more »
  • This place is a must visit. They offer different types of entrance plans. We chose the General Admission $19.99, which gave you one "animal encounter" (this is via a coin they give you at purchase). S...  more »
  • When we arrived shortly after 10am there was a small crowd waiting for admission. We waited about 30 minutes to buy tickets and get in. The first hour was okay, short waits for animal interactive acti...  more »
  • 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.
  • Tanganyika is the best place in the Wichita area to have some fun! if you like interactive experiences than this is the place to go! You can tell that Tanganyika cares for their animals to a great extent and the knowledge of their staff is off the charts. Please go if you haven't!
  • Overall it was pretty good. The price was a bit high, and the line was long. It was worth it though. My daughter loved petting the kangaroos and the alpacas. If you really want to enjoy all of the exhibits you have to be willing to pay for it.
  • 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!
  • Personally I have been to better zoo's. This zoo isn't to bad of a zoo. I dislike how small it is, and every thing cost a lot of money to do. You get one token to feed the giraffe and you get one little thing of lettuce. Overall not a bad zoo, just seems a little expensive for it bein a small zoo.
