    I am wondering if my 9 month old can go on the safari in Animal Kingdom. I read you can sit up front and not get as tossed around. If possible I would like to have both my husband watch our 4 year old experience this for the first time together.

    Jambo Melissa!  (hello in Swahili)

    I took our daughters on Kilimanjaro Safaris as infants even younger than 9 months and there were no problems at all.  It's true that the ride is rather bouncy so be sure to hold on tight to that little one, but otherwise you should have no problems.  The seats up front do jostle less but they are still a bit rough.  The roads through the African wild just aren't smooth anywhere!
