What to Expect

Our otters will be accompanied by a knowledgeable Tanganyika trainer to share fun and interesting facts as well as answer any questions you might have along the way.

This interactive experience will give you the opportunity to get up close to our fascinating otter friends while getting your photo taken with them, assisting in a training session, playing with them with their favorite toys, and more.

Our otter meet and greet is perfect for an adventure-seeking individual, pair or family. This unique animal experience is something you’ll never forget!

    A Day in the Otter Meet & Greet


    The otter meet and greet was a dream come true! Having the chance to see the otters up close and help train them was incredible. They have so much character! We also got some great photos with the otters! It was an experience we will never forget.

    We came for the otter and sloth experiences and they were INCREDIBLE! The ladies who led the experiences were kind, knowledgeable, and answered all of our questions. We believe one of our guides was Stacey, but unfortunately, we cannot remember the second. They were both so great.

    What a wonderful animal park!! It was small enough to enjoy for an hour or two but the hands on animal experiences are what makes this place so wonderful!! The keepers were very knowledgeable and nice and everything was clean and well kept. We did the otter meet and greet and it was the opportunity of a lifetime for my little otter lover. If I ever get back up to Kansas, I will definitely return.

    Conservation Corner: Asian Small-Clawed Otter

    The biggest threats to Asian small clawed otters is the pet trade and habitat loss. You can help them by educating your friends and family members about how cool they are but how not cool it is to have them as pets. In addition the otter specialist group is one of the most active groups and they have many recommendations on good projects to support.
