    We have always done the Kilimanjaro Safari at Animal Kingdom first thing in the morning. However, we will be at Animal Kingdom during an afternoon in March 2015. Would it be better to do the safari in the earlier afternoon or later afternoon?

    Jambo Lisa!

    The animals you'll see on your guided tour of Africa on Kilimanjaro Safaris are most active first thing in the morning and later in the day when the sun isn't as hot. I would recommend making your FastPass+ selection for as late in the afternoon as possible. The midday hours bring the highest temperatures and sunshine, and many of the animals prefer to beat the heat in the shade of the savanna brush during this time. 

    Enjoy your safari, Lisa.
