Walt Disney World provides the opportunity for several so-called backstage tours. Wild Africa Trek goes way beyond this. The Animal Kingdom Park is an ambitious undertaking, and the wildlife area is what makes it special. This is an opportunity to get on the ground in the area where most visitors simply get a tour in a safari truck carrying some... More

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! This tour was so much fun! The tour guides were very knowledgeable, nice, and safety conscious. I know it's a bit expensive, but it is well worth the cost. I would be happy to pay to do it again. It's a lot of fun to go behind the scenes of the safari portion in animal kingdom. I thought... More

We're booked to take this tour in June, but already the booking process has left a bad taste in my mouth. When I called to book on Sunday, I asked to be E-mailed a copy of my confirmation. The lady on the phone said that they don't send E-mails "for security reasons," but that I could enter my confirmation number... More

Our entire week at Walt Disney World was amazing, but the Wild Africa Trek was absolutely the highlight of our trip! From the moment we arrived, the staff treated us like VIP’s. They were extremely knowledgeable, safely conscious, and entertaining.... More
