First Look: Plains Zebras Head to Kilimanjaro Safaris at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

posted on October 12th, 2012 by Jennifer Fickley-Baker, Editorial Content Manager

By far, my favorite part of visiting Disney’s Animal Kingdom is taking a trip through Kilimanjaro Safaris in the Africa section of the park. The attraction’s beautiful animals and their lovely savannah habitats sweep me away to a very peaceful place every time I visit.

Earlier this year we announced that the finale scene of Kilimanjaro Safaris at Disney’s Animal Kingdom was going to undergo some changes that involve adding an extra animal habitat toward the end of the attraction. Well, work is nearly complete, and today we’re happy to present a look at some of the new residents that will soon call this area home.

The new habitat will feature plains zebras, which are native to eastern and southern Africa. They’ll be featured in the finale scene of the attraction, so look for them later on in the Kilimanjaro Safari journey.

I can’t wait to see the zebras! I’ll miss Little Red, but I do love zebras. :)
