Hungry for New Animal Adventures?

Experience an ethical wildlife animal weekend and make long-lasting memories with your family

The value is unbeatable and it will cost less than you think

Do you and your family want to experience a genuine wildlife animal adventure without traveling the whole world?
Do you want to cheer your family with a new animal adventure that will last forever and bond you even stronger?
Are you searching for a surprising way to celebrate freedom and revitalize after two years of pandemics and lockdowns?

What is a better time for new wildlife adventures and animal experiences than NOW?

The good news is that you don’t have to walk in the jungles, icy waters, rainforests, mountains, pine tree forests, or beaches to meet animals up close.
You can go to the most interactive zoo in the midwest —a place where you can experience animals up close from all over the world.
A place that’s built around immersing you in your favorite animals’ homes…
A place where you can get close and even interact with animals through animal experiences and animal attractions.
It’s scientifically proven that when animals surround us, there are unlimited benefits to our health, such as:
Decreasing stress and pain, reducing loneliness, calming anxiety, boost of mood, increasing happiness, developing compassion and empathy (vital for children)
Are you curious how we know that? Because we have experienced all this first-hand. We are Tanganyika Wildlife Park – a family-owned wildlife park built from the ground up with all the love we give to the animals. But we are much more than a breeding facility.
Your and the animals’ safety is our number top priority. Therefore, we can only take a limited number of people/families per weekend. The schedule is filling super fast, so be sure to get on the schedule now!

Our Search For the Best Wildlife Adventure

Matt’s parents’ dream was to build a world-class breeding facility for rare and endangered animals. His parents, Jim and Sherri, built the first barn in 1985, and the home of Tanganyika Wildlife Park was established.


“As a kid, I grew up with some of the rarest animals in the world in my
backyard. It wasn’t a big deal to have giraffes and tigers. I took them for granted and even considered them a chore.” Matt said.


In 2000, the Fouts family started doing guided tours of the breeding facility. It was wildly successful (pun intended), so they decided to build a zoo from the ground up. On Aug 2, 2008, Tanganyika Wildlife Park officially opened with 15 exhibits and three interactive areas.
