Kilimanjaro Safaris Expedition Disney's Animal Kingdom

Located in the Animal Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World, the Kilimanjaro Safaris Expedition is the premier attraction that all guests to Disney World should be sure to visit.

Home to an incredible array of exotic animals, the Kilimanjaro Safaris Expedition is a tour across the lush savanna wilds of Africa from the safety and comfort of an open-air safari vehicle.

With an incredibly realistic setting, this attraction spans 110 acres of exceptionally maintained exhibits for the animals that call it home, and the tour also offers a really accurate imitation of what one could expect when traveling to Africa for an actual photo safari.

So answer the call of the wild and head on over to enjoy all that Africa has to offer.

Safari Encounters

The ride may last just under 20 minutes, but it will be a truly unforgettable 20 minutes for all guests.

32 guests at a time are invited to board the open-air safari vehicles, and once all are safely aboard the tour heads on into a really accurate replica of an African high veldt habitat.

A true feast for the eyes, and for the soul, you’ll see a number of amazing wild animals roaming this beautiful wide open space.

From some of the most endangered rhinos to the majestic giraffe and even a herd of zebra and wildebeests, there are a number of wonderful animals to spot from your vantage point atop the safari vehicle.

Predators like lions and hippos are kept at a safe distance from the other animals that could otherwise become their prey, and from park guests so that you can view the awe-inspiring wild African lion without fear.

While the animals do have over 110 acres of land to roam, the designers at Disney were careful with their placement of food, watering holes, and foraging areas so that when your safari passes by, you’ll be treated to up close and personal views of some of your favorite African animals.

Some of the animals that you may encounter on your Kilimanjaro Safaris Expedition include the following.

  • Lions
  • Cheetah
  • Crocodile
  • Hippopotamus
  • Antelope
  • Black rhino
  • White rhino
  • Elephant
  • Giraffe
  • Okapis
  • Warthog
  • Ostrich
  • Wildebeest

VIP Tour Option

With an amazing lineup of animals, you are sure to come across plenty of opportunity for taking photographs that will serve as reminders of this very special safari adventure.

It is important to note that some of the animals may not be visible during certain times of the day, but your tour guide is sure to give you information about what animals you will likely be able to spot while on the ride.

Consider extending your safari with a VIP tour on the privately guided Wild Africa Trek.

This private 3 hour safari will get you up close and personal with some of your favorite exotic animals, while knowledgeable guides keep you entertained and informed along the way.

As one of the most popular attractions in the parks, there can often be a bit of a wait.

FASTPASS Available

The good news is that Expedition Everest is the most popular attraction in the Animal Kingdom, so you may find that you are waiting about 30 minutes.

FASTPASS is available for the Kilimanjaro Safaris, which will help you to bypass the lines when you are ready to enjoy your safari with your family.

This attraction is family friendly and suitable for all ages.

The ride is easily accessible for wheelchairs and strollers, but guests must be able to transfer easily into the safari vehicles for the duration of the experience.

Assisted listening devices are available for guests who are in need of them.

The Kilimanjaro Safaris adventure is a must-see stop on your next trip to the Animal Kingdom.

It is a truly unforgettable experience, for the entire family.
