    A Day in the Pride in the Making: Lion Cub Tour


    This was a wonderful experience. Well worth the eight hour drive to get there. We met wild cats. Had an encounter with Dexter the owl monkey. We fed penguins, bunnies, tortoises, goats and kangaroos. We also got to pet those same animals. My kids danced in the water play area. To top off the day we went swimming with penguins; a dream come true for two of my kids. The best zoo we have ever been to. The animals are definitely well taken care of. Their wants and needs are at the top of the list for what happens at any time.

    I’m very happy with our visit, we arrived around 130 pm and stayed until closing. The staff members were very polite, and professional and smiled. I appreciate the interaction they displayed with my 2 and 6-year-olds.
    The very simple gesture of talking to my children and asking how their day is going makes the experience even better.
    The zoo is clean and very easy to navigate. I enjoyed our visit and will return.

    I went to Tanganika with my daughter and grandson and it was an awesome experience! It was so fun to interact with the animals and be able to feed them. The baby goats were so adorable! The staff were very helpful in assisting with scooters. Thank you for an awesome day of making memories!
