This is a don't miss for those visiting Animal Kingdom! Our family actually enjoys doing the Trek several times during each visit, as each of the tours are different! The live animals within this trek are featured as you tour in a large vehicle, with a very we'll-trained and knowledgeable guide, within their habitats. You never know what they will... More

It was amazing! Helpful workers, and extraordinary animals! Lions, Tigers, Hippos, Crocodiles, and much, much more! Coming from Canada, it was great to see animals I would never see back home!

Having been on safari in Kenya a few months prior to our visit to Orlando, we nearly skipped this attraction. Good job we didn't as it was a great little ride and a lot of fun. The animals looked happy and the staff were friendly.

We went early (about 9:20) and saw all the animals, including the lions! We had a Fastpass for this ride so we waited for about 3 minutes. Got excellent pictures. It was awesome!

We have done 'the Trek' several times and each time experienced something different. We have been to Africa, this is a close as you can get, with out actually being in Africa.

I love Africa and have been to Kenya numerous times; Wild Africa is great for letting you get the feel of what it is like to be on safari in the real Africa. Just seeing some of the Great 5 wandering around the bush while you are in the vehicle is a thrill.

If your kids can be interested long enough in seeing "wild" animals, but often enough cursory glances are sufficient. A local zoo will be a much cheaper option and pretty much show you the same creatures.

Make sure you sit on an outside seat so you can see better. Lions, crocodiles, hippos, cheetahs, elephants, rhinos, giraffes, and more!

I am not a fan of Animal Kingdom. My kids are grown but we wanted to revisit it when we were in WDW in Jan 2015. This was the best attraction - - hands down. Everything else - - I won't be back for.
