Thanks for visiting. You are correct that Tanganyika isn't the best value if you simply intend to walk around and look at animals. If that is what you are looking for then I would recommend many larger zoos that allow you to spend hours walking...More

This family-owned wildlife park is awesome! All of the staff were kind, informative, and helpful. The food was great and gift store prices were “just right.” Can’t wait to take our family again!

Better than I expected. Being able to interact with the animals was amazing. We met Chewbacca on the sloth tour which was definitely worth the extra money. Everything was clean. The staff were all amazing. We will be back!

We visited this park with 5 children, ages ranging from 1 to 10. They all enjoyed the park. It wasn't crowded which was very nice. Lots of space, and the children really enjoyed all the feeding experiences. There were plenty of shady areas to sit...More

I enjoyed it. My family that lives in KS were disappointed. They used to have more interaction with the animals. We were given 2 cranberries and once the lemurs took them we were rushed out. I like the kangaroos. The monkeys were very active especially...More

You can't purchase the encounters seperately. You just have to decide whether you want 1, 5, or 10 encounters. You can mix and max any of the encounters up to the number you purchased. For instance, if you purchased the 5... More
