    A Wedding Dream Come True

    Tanganyika was amazing to work with! Taylor from Tanganyika made it so easy to plan our wedding and she made it run so smoothly. She sent monthly updates to keep us on track and was super sweet the whole time. Tanganyika is also so beautiful and you can have the ceremony and reception all in one place. I highly recommend!

    I am SO happy we chose Tanganiyka for our wedding & reception venue! The team was fantastic to work with, the park is beautiful, and our guests had a great time. TWP is especially great if you anticipate having a lot of kids at your event- they definitely get a kick out of seeing and interacting with all of the animals. Taylor Clark (event planner & coordinator) was a huge help that day as well- thank you for helping make our day unforgettable!

    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!
