Worth every penny! I went solo on this tour and had a blast. It was educational and the proximity to the animals cannot be beat. The rope bridges are the best part of the tour and an experience I will not forget. Lunch was delicious and I was worried because I am a very picky eater. The juice is also... More

The trek was fantastic. Me and my boyfriend went in late July, and I was worried the animals would be inactive and it would be extremely hot. However the animals were EVERYWHERE, all running around and being extremely entertaining. In addition the trek guides did a wonderful job of keeping us cool. In fact I was hotter walking to the...

This was the best experience my son and I have had at Disney World, ever! We will now add this to our must due list every time we go. Our guides, Abbe and Aaron, we great and kept the tour entertaining for all ages. We loved walking behind the scenes and see the hippos and crocodiles up close. We also... More

I wrote a review about my experience in booking Wild Africa Trek on March 19, 2014, but it seems that Trip Advisor took that review down. I booked by phone in March for our Wild Africa Trek in June 2014. I was immediately concerned because I gave the lady on the phone my credit card info to book a $400... More

I surprised my Mom and Dad with the Trek for their 40th Anniversary! We checked in early and then hung out across the way nibbling on fruit we bought at the stand. Then when it was time we went back and signed our life away to Disney and then locked up our purses, wallets, phones etc in lockers there at... More

Had a fantastic time! The Disney staff were superb. Top notch activity. It is a little pricey, especially when adding to it the cost the park entrance, but I think it was worth it. The highlights were the walks over the bridges, the lunch in the savannah with incredible views of the animals, and the "behind the scenes" tour. Well... More

They try to scare you a it with heights and harnesses, but honestly, this is Disney we are talking about. It is a good hike to see some of the big attraction animals like the crocs and... More

This tour is rather expensive; but I enjoy it so much that I have done this several times. Part of the cost goes to fund the conservation efforts. The tour also includes photos and a delicious, light lunch. The animal experiences were amazing. It was wonderful seeing the animals from different vantage points and also being given the time to...
