Today we noticed something unusual going on at Disney World’s Animal Kingdom park. Take a look at pictures and see what’s going on.
Kilimanjaro Safari Attraction
Set off in an open-air vehicle for a guided tour of an African savanna—and spot live animals roaming free.
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 wonderful 18-minute expedition.
Of course, sometimes a tour that brings you up close and personal with nature takes unexpected twists and turns. We reported a ride evacuation earlier this year HERE when several of their open air vehicles stopped without explanation.
Unique Animal Encounters
Spot a hippopotamus nestled in a still pond or look for lion sunbathing on a rocky perch. Drive past a gentle giraffe grazing on the tall trees or wave hello to a swinging baboon. Other amazing animals you may encounter include rhinos, cheetahs, crocodiles, elephants, hyenas and zebras—and so many more!
Since animals have minds of their own, every expedition is a unique and unforgettable experience. Be sure to keep your eyes open and have a camera ready—you never know what you’ll see on a Kilimanjaro Safaris outing.

Something is Missing
One of the cooler encounters I’ve (Susan) experienced on the Kilimanjaro Safaris is the crocodile’s “wresting” with one another in the water. However, that isn’t happening right now.
As a matter of fact, guests can’t see these crocodile’s at all right now. Why? This entire area is currently being refurbished. Hopefully, these scaly reptiles will return soon, but for now they are behind the scenes waiting for their newly redone home.
What do you think of this refurbishment? Do you think it will last a short time or take a little longer? Please let us know in the comments below and on Facebook.
