Tanganyika Wildlife Park

A “Wildly different experience” is definitely in store for you at Tanganyika Wildlife Park. One of the only places in the country where you can hand-feed lemurs, Tanganyika offers more hands-on opportunities than most animal experiences. In addition to ringtail lemurs, you can feed giraffes, the rare Indian rhino, African tortoises, guinea pigs, bunnies and pygmy hippos. Guests can walk right up to kangaroos basking in the sun and touch them or walk through a special home for colorful Lories that sit on your hand while they drink nectar from a cup. In the African penguin exhibit, you can see the warm weather creatures splash and have fun, have them create individual artwork for you on a Behind the Scenes experience, or reserve a time before you visit to swim with the penguins. Other “Behind the Scenes” tours will put you face to face with the crème-de-la-crème of African hoof stock, the okapi, or experience a close encounter of the slow kind with a totally lovable sloth. Preservation of animals is at the core of Tanganyika’s mission so this is the place to connect with rare and endangered species and become a steward for these beautiful animals. “Signature Meet & Greets” are another fantastic way to plan ahead and meet many new animals friends. If you want to experience something wildly different, Tanganyika Wildlife Park is the place to be!
