Guests wanting to venture off the beaten path at Disney’s Animal Kingdom will have the chance during a new, immersive, add-on experience in early 2011.
Wild Africa Trek will take a small group of adventurers on personalized guided excursions that include a bushwalk through unexplored areas of the Kilimanjaro Safaris forests. These expert-led treks will offer guests the opportunity to spend extended time observing and learning about the wildlife as they journey both on foot and onboard a customized vehicle.
The trek will include crossing a rickety footbridge above a riverbed paved of menacing crocodiles and an up-close encounter with a pool of hippos. To complete the journey, guests will experience a taste of Africa while viewing wildlife from a specially designed observation station.
Reservations for this specially priced experience will begin later this year. Due to weight restrictions for specific areas during the tour, participants must weigh between 60 – 310 pounds.
