Beautiful and helpful
The entire Tanganyika team made our wedding so wonderful! We had a penguin go down our aisle and multiple animals visit! Our guests were able to go into the Park which saved us money on having the bar open later while we finished our photos up. Ami was fantastic with being available when we needed her and she stayed the entire day! I helped my best friend plan her wedding somewhere else and couldn't believe how much more Ami would do. She even took out the trash! My guests couldn't stop talking about how magical Tanganyika was and my grandma called it the "Disney" of Kansas. You should definitely consider getting married here!Sent on 11/19/2020

Responsive and Happy to Help
We worked with Ami this year and she was awesome! Not only did she know how to calm me down when I was feeling a little anxious, but she was super easy to work with! We loved our venue and the staff was super helpful! If you love animals and you want to work with knowledgeable, trustworthy people, I would definitely recommend Tanganyika!Sent on 12/29/2020

Saved the day!!
My husband of 20 years and I had been planning our dream wedding for so long that when Covid threatened to not only ruin our wedding once but twice I was broken. The first time we postponed and the second time our venue canceled but I wasn't giving up. We love TWP and spend many weekends with our kids there, we even shot our love story there so when we got the cancel notice a month before I called them. They have an amazing event coordinator Ami and she set us up to come look that evening. We got there and it seemed meant to be. They didn't hesitate to take on all our craziness and they worked well with all our vendors. We wanted the fairytale and they delivered. From chandeliers and draperies too a sloth greeting guests at our cocktail hour too making sure we had room for all the extras I wanted. They really did come through for us and I will forever be grateful! They made our day WONDERFULLY AMAZING!! Thank you so much Matt, Ami, and the entire staff that helped make our dream wedding happen!!Sent on 11/25/2020

The Ladies at Tanganyika are the absolute best event coordinators in Wichita! They always go above and beyond for EVERY Bride. We love working with Tanganika, and love knowing that our Brides are in the best of hands, and will receive the upmost care and attention. They are a joy to work with, and we just love getting to be a part of their awesome venue!
If you are seeking a unique venue and an awesome staff, then look no further! Tanganyika is a beautiful venue that has a lot to offer. The park has a great outdoor site for your outdoor wedding and the air conditioned reception site is just a few paces away. Parking is never a problem and the staff is awesome. You will never be met with a fake smile, the staff is there to help and they are very accommodating to everyone involved in your event. I understand that they are adding some new lighting, so stay tuned! Tanganyika is easily one of the top choices for me when it comes to venue recommendations!
Sense they came upon the wedding scene a few years back they have made wonderful strides in both venues and customer satisfaction. It is a great place for a animal or outdoorsy type of weddings.
