  • This tour is worth every penny! It was my splurge item on a solo trip last fall. Jabali, the baby elephant, had just been on stage a few days, as he was three weeks old. Part of the fee goes to conservation programs. They even made allowances for my food allergies. I can’t wait to do this tour again!

  • This is a fantastic tour! Guides Loni and Mark were fun and passionate about us having a great experience and fun too! We saw so many of the animals up close that we wouldn’t get to see on the safari ride.We had an amazing meal with a view of the Savannah with the animals all around us, it was so cool!! The picture video of pictures arrived home before us and it brought back all of the fun we had that morning!! Would recommend this tour for everyone!! Thank you Disney for making this an adventure to remember!!!

  • We took the Wild Africa Trek in October. Cast members are/were great! We learned a lot and had terrific fun!

  • What fun! I hope their are plans to create more fun and educational tours like this one at WDW.
