#DisneyKids: Wild About Kilimanjaro Safaris

Disney’s Animal Kingdom is an awesome park for preschoolers, where they can explore the magic of nature through themed attractions, shows, character experiences and more. One of theme park’s most popular attractions for all ages is Kilimanjaro Safaris. During this 18-minute ride on an open-air vehicle through an African savanna, little ones will marvel at lions, giraffes, zebras and other favorite animals in their natural habitats.

We recently spent the day at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and chatted with young guests about their safari experiences. We think you’ll agree, their enthusiastic reactions are pretty adorable.

Do your #DisneyKids have a favorite memory of Kilimanjaro Safaris?


  • Absolutely loved the video. It was funny. I crack up anytime I see. Someone needs to get those kids in acting

  • We were thrilled when the baby giraffe stopped our safari for a bit until handlers were able to tempt him out of the way.

  • Greetings,

    My son loves experiencing the safari adventure on Kilimanjaro Safaris where every ride is unique and memorable. His most favorite moment was when the giraffe came up close to the vehicle where we could almost pat his snout. My son wasn’t verbal at the time, but that giraffe got his attention where he squealed with delight making us so happy.

    Thank you,
