We hiked through the back of the animal zoo and had an amazing up close personal look at the animals in their habitats as well as a truck ride through the animal park. We also received a gourmet lunch in a special viewing hut in... More

Paula and Joe were kind, fun guides. We enjoyed spending three hours with them. The tour provides binoculars for you to borrow. Disney gives each guest a stainless steel water bottle to use on the tour and take home with you. Photographs of your experience are included, along with access to gallery shots of the animals. We got about 20... More

The animals here have a lot of room to roam and seem pretty natural. I have been on a lot of safaris so I like this ride.

This was so great, very expensive but enjoyed every minute of it. Having lunch while the giraffes come up close so you can view was amazing. If you have the money I would recommend doing this!

Nick and Jess were our guides and if you have the chance, request them. Their enthusiasm for their field and their knowledge made the day for us. fFrom the beginning you are strapped into a harness and at any place where there is a drop off or on the bridges you are hooked to a tether. Bottom line: you are... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this added excursion. Our guides, Paula and Morgan, were knowlegable and just a delight. Tabitha fed the hippos and explained about filing their teeth! I was surprised to learn about the seriously declining population of giraffes in the wild. The snack stop was refreshing.

AMAZING! I spent my Birthday on the Savanna, with a small group (2 of which I knew). We were transported in the back of a safari truck, similar to the ones used on the Kilimanjaro Ride. Once out on the Savanna, we meet with a zookeeper, before heading to a stilted hut for appetizers & wines (beer & juice). Spending... More

Fun tour with very informative and genuinely friendly guides. Lots of close ups with the animals that the regular safari cant stop to do. It is $200 so if your cheap you may not enjoy it as much. The lunch was tasty and relaxing. I cant wait to take my kids when they are old enough. Plus you get complementary... More

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
