    Hi - two questions re AK tours. Is the Wildlife Excursion Tour at AK still available for club level guests? On Backstage Safari, what animals have been included in the encounter & does it include an excursion like on Kilimanjaro Safaris? Thx much !!

    Hi Leslie!

    The Backstage Safari is a 3-hour tour at Animal Kingdom and provides a in-depth knowledge base of how the Cast Members care for the many different animals. It is a walking tour and all guests must be ages 16 and up. The animals that are included in the encounter include elephants, rhinos and giraffes, just to name a few. You will get to meet the animals, however you will not get to pet any of the animals. You will also get to visit the vet room and learn about how they care for the animals. You will have a private ride on the Kilimanjaro Safari. I've heard so many wonderful things about this tour.

    A wonderful perk of staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge Club Level is the Sunrise Safari Breakfast Adventure. This is a 30-45 minute tour that also includes a private ride on Kilimanjaro Safari and includes a private breakfast at Pizzafari.

    Both experiences are wonderful for animal lovers.

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
