A Safari Getaway.... in the heart of Kansas!
We stayed at Hawkins Estate during our recent visit to Tanganyika Wildlife Park. When we first arrived, we found a beautiful welcome basket with wonderful local goodies. While there, eight of us stayed. This included grandparents, parents, teens and kids. At the Estate, we enjoyed the spacious kitchen (we cooked our meals), giant televisions (great to unwind after a day at the Wildlife Park), Pickelball Courts, swimming in the pool, playing pool table, enjoying games, and some great R & R. The girls LOVED the GIANT bean bag chairs (so comfy) in the Rec Room and watched tv there at night. The house is spacious and comfortable with every modern luxury. Most of all, we LOVED watching CHEETAHS from the back deck! My girls and I enjoy watching cheesy Hallmark films to unwind at home, and Love on Safari is one of our favorites because of all the beautiful animal footage. The girls remarked that they felt as if they were IN a Hallmark movie while staying at the Estate and enjoying Tangangyika. Tanganyika Wildlife Park is a truly special place. While I am referencing movie - We Bought a Zoo definitely comes to mind at Tanganyika. This is a custom-built dream animal park! Our family experienced the many animal encounters offered at this Wildlife Park and we were wildly impressed by the passion of the zookeepers, the magnificent animal ambassadors, and the unforgettable experiences. We felt like we went to Zookeeper University or Boot Camp for a couple days and it was... PHENOMENAL! The Origins Tour took us behind the scenes and we fed lions, Swimming with Penguins was delightful, feeding Chewbacca the Sloth was incredible, and meeting and greeting so many animal ambassadors was truly amazing. The entire program felt like a boutique zoo experience! I highly recommend Tanganyika's Encounters for unforgettable fun and furry memories for the entire family! Our entire family can't wait to go back!!! When I asked my youngest daughter to rank it from 1-10, she gave it a BILLION stars and said that her time there was truly, to quote Rapunzel, "The BEST Day Ever!" Thank you for the memories Tanganyika Team! - and I think I have to agree... a BILLION stars it is!
