Amara is a two-year-old in our Xenarthra clan. This playful pup is an avocado-loving anteater awaiting visits from friendly people like you!

Tanganyika Wildlife Foundation was created with the sole purpose of supporting exotic and endangered animal conservation and education efforts locally and around the world. We wanted to share some exciting updates on how you are helping to directly impact animal conservation!

Meet Our Baby Mandrill: Olympia

Mandrills are a vulnerable species on the IUCN endangered species list. Habitat loss and poaching have put these beautiful animals in peril. Mandrills are highly sociable animals that live in troops, with a dominant male in charge and close family ties.

Tanganyika Wildlife Park proudly preserves this unique species through our breeding program, and the birth is another step forward in much-needed Mandrill conservation.


Planning a birthday, wedding, or special event? Talk about a destination wedding in your backyard!! Between the one-acre of jungle gym, open-air special event area, splash park, semi-private cabanalows and our connection to local vendors, Tanganyika is the #1 place to celebrate your special day.
