How often have you had the chance to experience a singular African animal adventure—that includes a special food, beer and wine tasting—without even leaving the country? Now you can at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Definitely no ordinary day at the park, the Savor the Savanna Evening Safari Experience offers you the opportunity to hop aboard a private safari vehicle and enjoy an expedition through the Harambe Wildlife Reserve. The highlight? A stop at an exclusive viewing area where you get to sample a selection of regional beers and wines (well, for those 21 and over, anyway) and savor African-inspired tapas while taking in the impressive savanna. It’s a bounty of flavors bursting with delectable textures!

As you roll through the reserve on this incredible outing, you can watch it come alive with magic as a spectacular world of creatures roam about and grip your imagination. A guide paints a picture of the wildlife, pointing out fascinating facts along the way. A special keepsake commemorating your unforgettable evening trek is yours to take home as well.

  • Will this be extended past labor day?

  • What is the difference between this and Wild Africa Trek?

    • While similar to Wild Africa Trek, this experience does not include the physical activities such as the rope bridges and the hike through the woods. The food and beverage offered are also different.

  • cool that you have dining for carnivores, omnivores and herbivores as it is in the animal kingdom

  • How long is the safari portion of the experience, and how long is the experience overall?

  • This seems similar to the Wild Africa Trek. We have participated in that and had a wonderful vegan offering! Be sure to let them know when booking.

  • Ohhhh Benjamin, a fellow vegan! I did not even think of that because I always assume there will be something for me at Disney, but yes… GREAT QUESTION!

  • This sounds like a whole lot of fun. Can you tell me what vegan options will be available on the menu?

    • Though there isn’t a vegan menu, per se, Disney always strives to accommodate guest concerns. Dietary restrictions are accommodated to the best of our abilities. Please share any dietary needs when booking to best address your needs.

  • This sounds like a great night. Are there discounts for DVC members or AP holders?

    • Hi Stacey. At this time, there are no discounts available.
