If you are a DVC member or hotel guest staying at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas — Kidani Village you are in for a treat. The six-acre Pembe Savannah has a huge collection of animals including nyala, impala, waterbuck, spur-winged geese, ground hornbill, red river hogs and okapi. Because of space limitations it is uncommon for an exhibit to have so many different species interacting with each other — like they might in the wild. My personal favorite is the okapi. It is such an odd looking animal with stripes like a zebra yet also giraffe like. Okapi are actually pretty rare with fewer than 100 okapi located in just over 20 locations. In this picture, the red river hog seems quite happy sharing space with the okapi. All one big happy family.
