If you’ve ever wanted to venture off the beaten path and farther into the Kilimanjaro Safaris Expedition savannah, you’ll have a chance later this year. Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park will be offering a new, immersive experience that’ll take a small group of Guests on personalized, guided treks along some unexplored areas of the Harambe Reserve.

During the excursions, you’ll be able to spend more time observing the wildlife on the savannah and have a chance to learn about the animals and their behaviors from one of our Disney guides. Adventurers will also trek through an undeveloped forest area of the Harambe Reserve and then board a unique vehicle specially designed for the rest of the quest.

Walt Disney Imagineers are still working on many of the details but we wanted to share the news with you first. Reservations for this specially priced tour won’t begin until later this year, so keep checking back for more details.


  • I am looking forward to seeing the savannah since I have been to the real thing in Samburu in Kenya and Tanzania.

  • Sounds great! Although reservations will be taken in 2010, will the tours begin in 2010?

  • Thomas, is there any ETA on when more details will be announced? This seems like a great idea and would love to be able to plan it into our upcoming trip in February!

  • We will be there Oct. 1 and 2nd…hoping it will be open by then.
