A little expensive. Very enthusiastic guides. Always felt safe. Am glad I did it once, but don't plan to go again.

Ostriches are horribly underrated animals. They matter to me and to a lot of people. I was very excited to see them but was disappoint when they weren’t there. This place destroyed my trip. I don’t recommend it.

We found this on the Disney website and can’t begin to say how much we loved the safari. Yes, you more or less follow the regular Safari but the groups are small, the tour guides can stop and explain any of your questions, and you...More

I love animal experiences and interactions but didn't get one with this attraction. While the back track trails and personal experience are very good they don't let you touch or interact with the animals. The best was the high rope experience over the crocodile and...More

There is not a restroom until about 2 hours in. There really is no way to turn back or go ahead of the group. Might not want to do this tour if you have an overactive bladder or are nervous about this type of situation.

The trek is in the savannah so there's some shade from the trees and you'll be on grass. It will likely be a little cooler than it would be in the regular park as you won't be standing on hot asphalt. You will also be given... More

We did it two years ago. Kind of fun, but keep in mind it is a Disney event. Lots of acting and staging to make you feel like it's an impromptu happening with the wild animals. The walk across the bridge was real, and kind of neat. Then you drive thru the safari like the buses do, and stop for a light breakfast or lunch. It was OK. Something different than the typical park experience. Glad we did it, but certainly would never do it again.
