    My son has problems with motion sickness and will not be able to handle the safaris at AK. How can we make sure we see elephants while we are there?

    Hi Angela,

    I've been scouring my mind, notes, and the internet to make sure I haven't overlooked any way for all of you to get a chance to see the elephants without having to take Kilimanjaro Safaris; however,  I'm afraid it looks to be the only attraction that would provide you with that opportunity. 

    However, if you happen to be a concierge guest at the Animal Kingdom Lodge, you can take the Sunset Safari, which is a private tour of the savannah followed by a breakfast.  Since it doesn't involve the story line of Kilimanjaro Safaris, I'm hopeful it won't have all the bumps to help your son avoid motion sickness. The concierge staff at the resort can help you with booking this opportunity, or we can provide you with more details about it as well if you have more questions. 

    I wish I had better news for you.  Thank you for visiting the Moms Panel.
