Animal Kingdom: See the Lion Roar on Kilimanjaro Safari!

Have you ever seen the lion up close on the Kilimanjaro Safari at Disney’s Animal Kingdom? Have you ever heard it roar? Watch this amazing video of a male lion putting on a show for Safari passengers!

Disney’s Animal Kingdom is home to Kilimanjaro Safari. Explore the Harambe Wildlife Reserve, home to 34 species living in 110 acres of picturesque open plains, shady forest landscapes and rocky wetlands.

Your rugged safari vehicle is driven by an expert guide, who helps point out animals and shares fascinating wildlife facts during this extraordinary 18-minute expedition.

Passengers will see giraffes, rhinos, cheetahs, baboons, elephants, zebras, and lions.

Every time I have been on the safari, the lions have always been sleeping. I did get to witness baby giraffes this past year, which was really special!

Seeing the animals being so active is a special treat for those who are on the safari, including Kenny’s friend, Vikki, who shared this video with us!

Check out this awesome video of the male lion showing his roaring skills on the Kiliminjaro Safari:

You can see the male walk towards the vehicle a little and roar several times. What a cool experience for those on the safari!
