Plan Your Visit to Tanganyika Wildlife Park!

We’d like to extend a warm and happy wildlife welcome to you from our Tanganyika Family. We connect people like you (aged 1 to 100) with rare and endangered animals in order to educate, inform, and inspire them to relate differently to the bigger world of wildlife around us. We’re glad you’re here to embark upon this fulfilling journey with us.

Animals make us laugh, help us relax, and inspire us to appreciate the moments that matter. Our animals are different. What do a lemur, an okapi, a pair a siamangs and a Blue Macaw have in common?
You can see them all in one place, at one time, in WICHITA!

Parents and grandparents tell us their best memories with kids (from toddlers to teens) are our 1-on-1 Animal Experiences.

What is an Animal Experience you ask?

Swim with a penguin, play with an otter, train a lynx, hand feed an orphan baby joey (kangaroo).

Below we tell you more about it and answer all your frequently asked questions.
