Aaron on the Wild Side

Not even two miles from our house is an amazing wildlife park.  Tanganyika Wildlife Park is a favorite of ours, and definitely a favorite of Aaron’s.  Yesterday afternoon Gary and I took Aaron to Tanganyika for an afternoon on the wild side.  I loved these pictures so much that I just wanted to share them with all of you.

You can see by Aaron’s smile that he loves Tanganyika!


We were greeted at the beginning of our visit by these ends!  🙂


Aaron loved feeding Pluto some carrots.  Look at those teeth!!


The penguins are adorable!




We fed some lemurs but couldn’t take photos in there.

Then there was this huge guy, who is 48 years old!


The kangaroo was soft and mellow.


And Aaron LOVED the Lorikeets, especially the one who nibbled and licked his hair.



This beauty danced when I played a song on my phone!  So much fun!



There are so many other animals to see.  It’s just a great place…not too big but with plenty to see.

We ended with a stop to see and feed the giraffes.  Look at both these happy faces!!  What a perfect way to end our day on the wild side with Aaron!

I'm Patty and I write about our adult son who has Epilepsy and Autism, who still lives with my husband and me, and who is a package full of many surprises and joys and challenges and TALK! Lots of talking, which creates laughter and some other reactions as well. I also write about how God shows Himself to me in everyday life.

  1. When I saw these beautiful pictures of Aaron enjoying these animals to the utmost, seeing Aaron’s beautiful smile, and this came to mind of Aaron:

    “ And I thinks to myself what a wonderful world”

  2. Patty, the photos are great! Aaron is having a wonderful time and not having to wear his mask. Feeding all the animals and enjoying the birds seemed to be a joy maker. A win, win for everyone. Thank you for sharing.

  3. This is awesome, Aaron looks like he had a blast!
    The kids and I have been there probably five years ago. My best friend was living in Dodge City while her husband was a youth pastor. The kids and I went down to visit them and my friend bragged up Tanga(however it’s spelled) so we loaded up kiddos and spent the day there.
    I actually blogged about it last year but somehow my post ended up in the trash and permanently deleted; luckily my mom had a copy in her email so I still have a copy and plan to repost one day…we have much of the same pictures as you do with Aaron❤️❤️❤️
