We do this every time we go to animal kingdom. It's different every time because different animals seem to be out every time you go. Always another animal to see.

I wanted to try something different as I was by myself a day before my family arrived and this Trek was absolutely perfect. When you first arrive you are asked to put any loose items (cell phones included) in lockers. You are then harnessed, given a water bottle (which you get to keep) and then you start the trek. Our...

We decided to book this for Easter morning knowing that the crowds would be extremely high in the parks and this would give us something to do in a small group setting that would be more enjoyable. Best money spent! It is expensive, but so totally worth it. Our guides, Rachel and Nicole, were amazing! They were extremely knowledgeable about... More

It's a bit pricey, but worth every dime. I wouldn't recommend this for small children lot's of walking on all kinds of terrain. Wonderful views of the animals and there are two photographers to capture all the shots so you can enjoy the view. You also get a photo cd included in the price.

Always wanted to participate in this Trek but though it was always too expensive. I very much enjoyed this experience. Traveled into the park prior to it's opening. Suited with a harnest vest, water bottle, name tags and loose items like cameras attached to you. All other items had to be placed in a locker. There are two guides (cast... More

If you can spend the money this is the best thing you and your family can do in AK. You get to be up close with the animals, have a wonderful meal, get professional photos, and have phone-free time with your family. We all loved the trek, and I hope to do it again some day.

This is the one attraction that you never tire of since every"safari" is different. One of the top couple attractions at Disney, go early and get on then ride again with a fast pass!

This was the highlight of our Disney World visit. It is expensive, about $200 to $265 per person, depending on when you opt to go. It is worth every penny. It is a 3 hour tour. Our guides Moira and Josh were fun and knowledgeable. There is a definite emphasis on making certain every aspect of the experience is very... More

The Wild Africa Trek is one of my favorite things I've ever done in OR out of Disney World! It really gives you a chance to get up close and learn a lot more about the animals than you would on a normal safari. The guides are super friendly and knowledgeable and more than willing to answer questions or explain... More
