Animal Kingdom Kilamanjaro Safaris Expedition

Kilimanjaro Safaris, an attraction for Guests of all ages, provides the chance to see African animals including giraffes, black rhinos and lions, as they roam the 100-acre savanna in the Africa area of Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park.

The Kilimanjaro Safaris tour begins in the Harambe Wildlife Reserve, across the river from Discovery Island. Climb aboard a rugged open-sided safari vehicle for an exciting expedition through the wildlife preserve. The ride can be a bit bumpy as it crosses rickety bridges, rocky hills and rivers—but you're rewarded with spectacular animal sightings.

Since animals have minds of their own, no two Kilimanjaro Safari experiences are the same. You may even catch a glimpse of one of the many baby animals that were recently born at Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park.

Perhaps you'll see one of these species:

  • Antelope
  • Baboon
  • Black rhino
  • Cheetah
  • Crocodile
  • Elephant
  • Flamingo
  • Gazelle
  • Giraffe
  • Hippopotamus
  • Lion
  • Okapis
  • Ostrich
  • Warthog
  • White rhino
  • Wildebeest
  • Zebra
  • The attraction concludes when your tour guide receives word that poachers have taken a baby elephant from its mother. Your truck takes off on a chase to help save the infant animal from harm.

    You never know what amazing animals you'll see on Kilimanjaro Safaris. Keep your eyes open and your camera ready!
