We highly recommend this adventure for a close up view of the animals of Animal Kingdom. The guides were very knowledgeable, fun and patient. I was afraid of the 30 foot rope bridge and they even offered to walk next to me, which I didn't need after all! They also told fun stories and gave us inside information about Disney... More

I did this for my 30th Birthday last year and it was amazing! It's a really great way to gain more knowledge of the animals as well as get fantastic pictures of them. If you are going during a peak or when it's suppose to be super hot, I would highly recommend going in the morning. That way you can... More

My daughter and I took the early morning Wild Africa Trek and it was just wonderful. Our guides were so fun and informative. The rest of our group were great too. The food was really lovely, healthy and served in a beautiful location. We were very impressed when at the end we got to choose which animals we would like... More

Even discounted, the price is rather high, considering you've already paid for park tickets. Otherwise, this was a great experience, and considered a highlight of our trip. We had 4 kids, age 9-16. All thoroughly enjoyed it.

This was well worth the money to spend on this attraction. The behind the scenes and personal service is great. You're in a small group as you trek through the savannah and get to see many of the animals close up. Highly recommend it.

We love Animal Kingdom & were looking for some kind of new Disney adventure when I found wild Africa Trek . Like much of Disney, it wasn't cheap, but we weren't disappointed. Before getting started, you harness up for when you get out on the Savannah. Later you'll use the harness to creep to the edge of a ledge overlooking... More
