I've reviewed this attraction at WDW's Animal Kingdom before and always believed it to be a wonderful theme-park experience of a game drive in Africa. We have visited WDW many times and never miss this ride in AK during our trips. What we did NOT...More

We were pretty excited for this attraction and left very disappointed. The ride was extremely uncomfortable and bumpy. Our three year old was terrified during the ride. I've done better safaris in other states in my own vehicle without having such an uncomfortable journey. Would...More

We love the safari ride at Animal Kingdom: so very real and exciting to be in the AFrican savanna with giraffes, kudus, cheetahs, ostriches, warthogs, okapis, and so many more. They are roaming free and you always see different animals on every ride through the...More

If you can't make it to Africa, this is the next best thing! During our safari we saw a black rhino, a warthog, white rhinos, elephants, bongos, giraffes (including an adorable baby giraffe!), crocodiles, okapi, greater flamingos, pelicans and lots of other wonderful African animals....More

Disney's Kilimanjaro safari simulates an open-sided safari ride through the savanna of East Africa. We have been to Orlando a couple of times and this is a firm favourite. In essence the ride takes you through various sections where the animals roam around whilst the...More

Not sure what the question is. If seeking park pricing, go to the WDW web site. If for the attraction, Kilimanjaro Safari, as already mentioned, it is included in the price of the Animal Kingdom park.
