Has anyone been on the Wild Africa Trek and if so would you recommend it? How long does it take?

I took the Wild Africa Trek about a year ago and it was worth every penny. At that time, it was a 3 hour tour with a combinatioin of walking and riding in a safari vehicle. You get the opportunity to see the animals in a setting you don’t normally see on the Kilmanjaro Safari ride. It’s great!

Thanks Karen. I have been wanting to take the tour for some time now however I have just kept putting it off. I will have to put it on my agenda for one of my up coming trips… Thanks-a-bunch

We just did the WildAfricaTrek on June 13th . Did the 12:30 for the discount and couldn’t have been more pleased. It was great and the guilds were as well. 1st time in all our trips we saw the Hippos & Gators moving around.

Is there a way to be notified when the 2013 Candlelight Processional is available for reservations. I know this popular event will sell out quickly and I want to get in early. No info has been available on the web or by calling the reservations line. Thanks for any help.

Hi Kyle, we’ll give a heads up here on the Disney Parks Blog when they’re available.
