    Planning a trip to WDW for my grandma & I. was checking out the Wild Animal Trek & I think she'd love it but she has knee problems & will most likely be using a scooter in the parks, could she still participate and use a cane or will it be too

    Hi Danielle!

       My family was lucky enough to participate in Wild Africa Trek this June!  It was so completely amazing and it was truly an experience that my boys will never forget.  However, I think that I have bad news for for your grandma...  There was a lot of hiking involved and you cross not one, but two rope bridges that are dangling high above hungry crocs below!  At many of the stops, you are harnessed to a safety vest and then must maneuver your way over pretty rocky terrain to take in the views of the animals.  I wish that I had better news for you and your grandma, but I would honestly not recommend this tour for her.  Sorry to be such a bummer!

         Look for my video that was shot detailing this adventure soon!  If you would like to participate, your grandma may be able to get a glimpse of you crossing the bridges as she enjoys Kilimanjaro Safaris.  Have a fantastic vacation!

    Much pixie dust,
