The safari ride by the big truck was the best feature of Animal Kingdom. Sit in the middle or, back so you have a better view of the land and animals. The seats in the front 2 rows were blocked by the cab.

We would not have missed the African Safari ride - two really - one by boat and one by truck- into the savannah to view live African animals up close. Cameras were allowed and great pictures were captured!

This mini safari is one of our highlights of our Animal Kingdom visit. It was great driving through the same fields etc as the elephants, lions, zebra etc and far better than viewing them through glass. The driver is very informative and quick to point out the animals to maximise your photo opportunities.

Our family of 5 recently did Disneys Wild Africa Trek at Animal Kingdom in Orlando and we were extremely impressed with the tour. We were unsure at first whether it would be worth the money considering Disney already offer the Kilimanjaro Safari as part of the admission to Animal Kingdom. After attending the tour we were definitely not disappointed we... More

Great experience, conservation center. Relaxed, but very educational for all ages. Considering this is Disney, sorry but, Busch Gardens is Waaaaaay better.

this was really fun. It was nice to see the behind the curtain things but it was a little contrived., We didn't just "happen upon" the animal caregivers but it really was informational. Worth the money. It is a Disney after all.
