#DisneyMagicMoments From Home: Kilimanjaro Safaris

by , Editorial Content Director, Disney Parks

Jambo, friends!  Every day, we see more and more great stories of cast members and Disney fans creating magical moments at home, and we can’t help but be delighted and inspired by the true creativity in action!

One such example is Katelyn, a cast member at Kilimanjaro Safaris in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Inspired to recreate the attraction at home, she led a one-of-a-kind video safari through the Harambe Wildlife Reserve, complete with some of her favorite “animals” and her very own safari vehicle. She even shared some great facts about wildlife along the way.

Kilimanjaro Safaris is definitely a favorite attraction at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. With its amazing animals and interesting animal facts, it is no surprise that our cast members love sharing this unique experience with guests.

Be sure to keep an eye out for additional #DisneyMagicMoments and #DisneyCastLife stories sharing Disney magic from home. Until then, kwaherini!


  • Ok so, THAT was awesome! Cannot thank katelyn enough for doing all of that! So well done! What? I’m not crying, you’re crying!

  • This is so wonderful! My first ever safari my friends and I were seated at the very front. The tour put us in a state of such awe, the tour guide commented that the faces we were making made her day! She also made OUR day with an incredible tour! Can’t wait to return to Animal Kingdom

  • This made me smile and pray for the day we can all return to Disney.

  • Jambo to you too and THANK-YOU!

  • This is amazing! Thank you Katelyn; this made my day and put a huge smile on my face. KS is one of my absolute favorites at WDW and I’ll be missing a trip this month so it brought a little bit of home to me. Hope you are safe at home and have a magical day 😉
