Tanganyika Wildlife Park has more interactive experiences than any other zoo in Kansas and possibly the Midwest. We offer various degrees of interaction from feeding, petting, or simply walking around in their exhibit. We base the level of interaction by exhibit for safety and to ensure the animals are comfortable in their homes. All interactive experiences are supervised by our knowledgeable and friendly staff. Finally, the interactive experiences do cost extra and additional the money raised helps us feed the animals in the winter. This is especially important because we are a private, family-owned zoo that receives no government subsidies. Therefore, we must raise over $600,000 a year to care for the animals through the winter. To learn more about the Tanganyika Winter Fund, click here. Below are some of our more popular interactive experiences:
- Giraffe Feeding Post
- Lorikeet Landing
- Indian Rhino Feeding - at 11:30 am and 2:00 pm

- Ring-tail Lemur Island - Open in a limited capacity while we train the lemurs for a new experience
