Twilight Tour

An Enchanted Benefit Event 

This year's twilight tour has been set for Saturday, June 15th, 2019.

As dusk approaches, the energy at Tanganyika Wildlife Park takes on an enchanting quality. While the sun starts to set, the senses begin to rise, turning toward other signs of the presence of the magnificent animals nearby. The reverberating roar of a lion, a sound heard most often at night, carrying nearly five miles as he announces his presence and lays claim to his land.

It’s during this special time that we host our annual Twilight Tour, an exclusive benefit event supporting the Tanganyika Winter Fund. The Fund was first established in 2011 when we adopted several big cats and giraffes literally overnight from the Roosevelt Park Zoo, which was destroyed by a flood with an estimated $60 million needed to rebuild. While it was our honor and duty to respond, with these animals came the need for additional care that stretched our family-owned zoo’s budget beyond its limits.

Join us for our annual Twilight Tour, an exclusive event benefiting the Tanganyika Winter Fund. This intimate evening includes wine and beer samplings, hors d'oeuvres, free unlimited interactive animal stations, visits with animal keepers, an animal art walk, and an auction.
