Travel on trucks through a Disney-made safari to get a close look at monkeys, elephants, lions, antelopes, and more animals you might only find on an African safari. Each safari ride is led by a guide, who will tell you about each of the different animals that may be out at that time. This ride is unique every time you ride it because different animals are visible each time. Don’t be too late as this ride typically closes at dark. This attraction is amazing, and it is like no other at Walt Disney World. No trip to the Animal Kingdom is complete without a visit to the Kilimanjaro Safaris.

Some of the animals residing at Kilimanjaro Safaris are:

  • Antelopes
  • Giraffes
  • Elephants
  • Cheetahs
  • Warthogs
  • Flamingos
  • Hippos
  • Lions
  • Crocodiles
  • and many more!

Tips and Trivia

  • Kilimanjaro Safaris closes around dark. Our experience has been that the last tours go out around 5 PM or so. Be sure to not be too late for this amazing Animal Kingdom attraction. Grab a FastPass to ensure you’ll get on this ride.
  • While you don’t want to be too late, some of the best tours happen later in the day. This is when most of the animals are awake and more lively than early morning safaris.
  • Bring your camera! You’ll probably be able to get a few amazing shots of the animals, especially if you have a good zoom lens.
