    As an adult, I am wanting to experience something new on our Disney vacation coming up. Any feedback on the "Wild Africa Trek"? Something worth experiencing? Thanks so much :)

    Hi Jillian,

    I have done the Wild Africa Trek twice, once with my children and once with a group of adults. I LOVED it both times, and both times there were many more adults on the Trek than children.

    I particularly enjoyed the up-close-and-personal experiences with the hippos and crocodiles. I liked traversing the rope bridges. And I really liked the quality time we got to spend with real animal experts. We were able to ask them any question we wanted about animal care at the parks.

    But my favorite part of the Trek was the time we spent lingering on the savanna. There is a raised platform in the middle of the savanna where you spend about half an hour relaxing and viewing the animals at your leisure. To me, this was very different than watching the animals on the Kilimanjaro ride. Inside of just getting quick glimpses, you really get to observe their behavior over time. In addition, there is a super yummy meal served on the savanna. If you go to the independent website, you can see photos I took of the meal. (Look for an article called "Snacking on the Savanna.")

    Don't forget to bring your camera. There are some PhotoPass pictures included with your Trek, but you'll want to get some of your own as well.
