    A lovely day enjoyed by all!

    The venue as wonderful. Ami was incredibly helpful and the guests had a blast visiting the park on the day of the wedding. The only negative Is that the aisle is difficult in heels. I would recommend that they use pavers or fill in the gaps between stones. That is minor though. I loved Tanganyika!!!

    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!

    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!
