Full article: Wild Africa Trek news - Wild Africa Trek at Disney’s Animal Kingdom begins new adventures this Sunday

Highlights:

  • Trekking with experienced guides through areas of Harambe Wildlife Reserve that aren’t explored during regular Disney’s Animal Kingdom experiences.
  • Navigating winding pathways through dense fern, bamboo and vine forests on a bushwalk that sets a course for adventure.
  • Clipping into a harness attached to a safety line, crossing a seemingly precarious rope bridge over the Safi River and cliff-hanging at the edge of gullies that are home to hippos and crocodiles.
  • After pausing at an overlook above the grasslands for breathtaking views, boarding customized open-air vehicles that course through the vastness of a magnificent savanna. Extended time is allotted for animal viewing with expert guides.

Pricing:

Reservations for Wild Africa Trek (ages 8 and up) can be arranged by calling 407/WDW-TOUR (939-8687). Pricing for this unique adventure will vary seasonally. Included is a Disney photographer who will provide each trekker with select photos of their experience.

I definitely was thinking about this for our 25th anniversary trip until I read:

“cliff-hanging at the edge of gullies that are home to hippos and crocodiles”

What does that mean??? I’m not a good “cliff hanger.” I believe panic will strike at some point!

I was just reading about this in the newest addition of the Celebration magazine. Sounds like a lot of fun, but I’m with Beth. Noooooo cliff hanging for me either. :eek: I’ll be interested in hearing all about it from someone that tries it though.

I’ve read this will be more of a lean… you’ll be clipped on to a safety rope (whatever they call that) and you can lean over the hippos & crocs with your feet on the ground. So I’ve read… I’m sure more details will come out after Sunday!

this looks amazing if not a little scary in parts. But don’t you think its a bit expensive $$$$ for three hours.

I’m thinking this is something for our 16th anniversary in October.
