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.

Perfect for brides who like to think outside the box! Staff is great and this is one of my favorite locations for sunset photos! :)
