Tanganyika Wildlife Park in June 2011

Tanganyika Wildlife Park near Goddard, Kansas opened to the public in June of 2008. Prior to that, the Tanganyika Wildlife Park was a private zoo. Tanganyika is a non-profit breeding facility for rare and endangered species. Species represented in the park include giraffes, tigers, clouded lepords, black rhinoceros, and zebras.

Tanganyika Wildlife Park distinguishes itself from other Kansas zoos by emphasizing interaction between visitors and the animals, There are many opportunities to feed or pet wildlife as diverse as lemurs, camels, birds and snakes. Some of those encounters, such as feeding the giraffes, have additional fees.
