We have had this on our list to do for some time, but didn't know much about it. We finally did it, and WOW. It was the best Disney experience we have had, no exceptions. Our Guides, Meg and Becca, were outstanding. They were educational, entertaining, engaging, and didn't loose anyone along the way. The Trek portion of the experience... More

Visited Wild Africa Trek at Animal Kingdom as part of a two week action packed holiday with family (kids 8 and 10). Everything from the car parking, to admission, to the rides, fast track system was excellent. Was hot, but that is the time of year for you. Queues were long, but again, it is what it is and they...

In all our disney trips this blew everything else out of the water. Yes you need to book and yes it costs quite a bit extra but it was actually priceless. The two guides davis and hilary were knowledgeable, fun and laid back and the mixture of adventure education and behind the scenes is irresistible. We were.incredibly lucky to be... More

We went on the 8am trek this morning. This is an extra that you have to book in advance and costs approx $180 per person. We thought it was a great experience. Our guides, Frank and Jason, were fun, friendly and knowledgeable and made the experience better. Based on the description on the website, the warnings, the waiver you need... More

8 am tour was great. danielle and paola were sensational guides. 8 am particularly nice because not a lot of people want to get to park that early though it's coolest time and animals active. we lucked out being the only 2 on the tour. they claim one needs to be in good shape but this barely played a role....

My husband and I LOVE all WDW parks, but some have more to do than others. Animal Kingdom, in my opinion, doesn't have as much to do as other parks like Magic Kingdom. Since I knew that we have extra time, I started to peruse through WDW's website in the "Things to Do" section and I came across this walking... More

I have an 8 year old son who loves learning about different animals. This was perfect for him. We had Nick and Olivia as our tour guides and they did a fabulous job! Fortunately, it was just me and my son on the tour so they were able to focus on all of our questions. You really learn about many... More

I was a little wary before hand because we paid $200 each to go on it but I was pleasantly surprised that I had such a great time on this trek! Admission to this private tour is separate from your Animal Kingdom ticket. There are weight and age restrictions for this tour: You must be at least 8 years old... More

This is a 3 hour excursion through Animal Kingdom Savanna, with with behind the scenes access to viewing animals and learning much more in detail about their habitat. The first part is walking and you are wearing a full harness so they can tie you off and you can do some closer viewing of some of the animals (hippos and... More

Fun and unique! You go in a huge truck and the terrain is bumpy just like it would be on a real safari. The tour guide even gets into her role. I asked her, "how any animals do you have here?" And her response was, "we don't have any of these animals. In the African Savanna, no one owns them."... More
