My husband and I participated in the Wild Africa Trek at Animal Kingdom in Walt Disney World just a few weeks ago. We had heard good things about it, so we thought we would give it a try!
We chose to tour at 9:00am, this was a good time to go, although I don't think there is a bad time. First things first, we put our belongings in lockers and got harnessed up. (They let you bring your own camera as long as it can clip to your harness or if there is a neck strap. The tour guides take a camera along and take pictures of you and the animals along your trip. We found that we didn't take any of our own pictures!) You practice walking along a rope bridge, then you are off!
We started walking in the forests a little bit, we saw hippos up close and we got to ask researchers questions about the animals. Same with the crocodiles-you will walk 2 rope bridges over the crocodiles to get an amazing perspective! This was awesome!
After walking the first part of the tour, we got in a personal safari truck to see some areas of the savannah that passengers on the Kilimanjaro Safaris didn't get to see. Then you are treated to "tastes of Africa" towards the end of the tour! This is food that you can only get on the Wild Africa Trek!
Since the tour guides take all the pictures, they sent us a CD about 2 weeks after our trip, packed with pictures of us and our tour group and animals that we saw on our trip!
I would do this tour again! I feel like we got to see more in the 3-4 hours on this tour than we would have on our own all day!

This was worth every dollar for this tour. I am afraid of heights but crossing over the hippos and the Nile Crocodiles was wild. The guides were very helpful and were able to answer our questions. We were lucky enough to most of the animals on the savanna.

Now this is by no means a real African safari, but it saves the travel time and costs. The highlights for me were walking over the high suspension bridge over a river full of nile crocodiles, as well as standing at the edge of the croc's lair. The lunch over looking the safari with giraffes in view is pretty special as well. The tour isn't cheap, but what is at Disney? if you love wild life, it's a must do at least once.

This really lived up to my expectation and I loved it! The Cast Members were very friendly and helpful, it was like a day out with friends. The animals were amazing to see, I loved the rope bridges and being able to 'lean over the edge' to see the hippos and crocs closer. The food we had halfway through was interesting and lovely. I can't wait to do this again.

There is only one word to describe this adventure and that is WOW and awesome. It is worth every penny you spend on it. You get really up close to the animals and the snack you get when you stop for the "break" is delicious........and the CD with all the photo's are included in the price........It is just amazing
