This privately owned park puts visitors in close range of exotic animals from around the world

A world away from Wichita’s urban hustle and bustle, Tanganyika Wildlife Park is known for wide open spaces and close encounters with wild animals. Visitors benefit from the more than 75 years cumulative experience of co-owners, Jim and Sherri Fouts, in the wildlife industry. In addition to entertainment, the park has a mission to educate visitors about endangered species and related conservation efforts. Voted the #1 best place for families, by Wichita Family Magazine, it’s a place where you can stand near meerkats as they sun themselves, or pat a small kangaroo if it approaches you. More than 300 birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and other animals fill the grounds, including dromedary camels, black and white ruffed lemurs, and pygmy hippopotamus. For a budget bonus, check out Wild Wednesdays, when one child can visit for free with one adult admission.
