Most People Have No Idea This Unique Park In Kansas Exists
When it comes to attractions, both big and small, Kansas truly has it all. However, several Sunflower State spots often go overlooked, including this little known and unique park that few realize even exists:
Located in Goddard, Tanganyika Wildlife Park is a unique and interactive experience that was officially opened in 2008 and is backed by the Zoological Association of America.
Before the park itself was opened, Tanganyika Wildlife Company was established as a zoo supply association that worked to breed, care for, and transport exotic species all over the world.
It wasn't until the 1990s when government regulations changed and the company switched its focus and became the non-profit Tanganyika Wildlife Foundation.
Today the park boasts one of the most hands-on animal exhibits in the region that boasts 6 different feeding stations...
Your eyes do not deceive you; you can indeed feed the giraffes!
...and even animal rides!
According to their
website, the Tanganyika "is home to over 300 animals, including birds, mammals, reptils, amphibians and animals you can directly interact with. From black-footed penguins to white bengal tigers, we have some of the most rare, endangered and interactive animals in Kansas."
Talk about epic selfie opportunities; the park is even home to the country's only interactive Lemur Island...
...as well as the world's largest collection of clouded leopards!
Not to mention one of the country's largest snow leopard collections.
