From food beyond belief, celebrating all living things, Safaris, Treks & Adventures, to exotic animals in the wild, guests will find themselves lacking nothing when it comes to spending a day at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Now here is our list of 3 things to do at Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
Looking to set off in an open-air vehicle for a guided tour around an African Savanna? The Kilimanjaro Safari ride has you covered. You will be able to explore the Harambe Wildlife Reserve, which is home to 34 species living in 110 acres of open plains, forest landscapes and rocky wetlands. On your ride, your expert guide will help point out animals and share amazing wildlife facts during this extraordinary 18-minute expedition. You will encounter unique animal experiences such as, meeting a hippopotamus swimming in his pond, witness a lion sunbathing on his perch, drive past a giraffe as tall as the horizon or see a swinging baboon. You may see other animals like rhinos, cheetahs, crocodiles, elephants, hyenas, zebras, and many more! Since these animals can roam free throughout the African Savanna each experience is unique and could be different from others. Be sure to keep your eyes wide open and be ready to take pictures, you never know what you could miss on your Safari ride.
MAHARAJAH JUNGLE TREK
Located in Asia at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, we find ourselves at Maharajah Jungle Trek. You can adventure down mystical trails to discover a wonderland of tigers and other wild animals. The Mystical Forest they call the Maharajah Jungle allows you to cross towering footbridges, roam around jungle bends, witness waterfalls and stand in the shadow of a giant palace. In addition to the amazing expedition you will encounter Asian tigers, Gibbons, Eld’s deer, Blackbuck, Komodo Dragons, Malayan flying fox, Water buffalo, and over 50 species of birds. They say that this forest was once the hunting ground of the maharajahs but today it’s a tropical wonderland you can explore on a self-guided tour. But beware of your adventure, it’s a wild jungle out there and anything could happen.
