Disney Babies in the Animal Kingdom

Over the past few months there have been some new additions to the families inside the Animal Kingdom. The elephant family and the gorilla family have welcomed sweet babies into their world and now visitors can enjoy watching the miracle of an animal family in person.

Riders on the Kilimanjaro Safari are able to catch a glimpse of what I am assuming is Luna, the elephant calf born in May, with her mother Donna. Luna is now around 2 months old. Luna was the latest calf born into the herd since 2008 so I would think that the baby we’re seeing now is her.

Happy Family

Walkers through the Pangani Forest Exploration Trail will be able to see Lily, the little girl gorilla born at the end of February. Mother Kashata and baby Lily are very much on the move now and it is amazing to watch their interactions together.

Kilimanjaro ‘Photo’ Safari

Disney’s Animal Kingdom is a special place for animal lovers. Guests can get up close and personal with the magnificent creatures that call this park home. In Africa guests are given the opportunity to see what it would be like to go on an actual safari. Today we will take a photo safari of this attraction, the Kilimanjaro Safari.

These are just a sample of the many animals you can see on the Kilimanjaro Safari. My suggestion is to ride more than once in the mornings to get the most out of the attraction. Other animals that you might spot include the lion, watusi cattle, white rhino, and more. So pack up and head on out for that two week safari!

Giraffes on Safari

The Kilimanjaro Safari at Disney’s Animal Kingdom begins by taking visitors on a two week safari through Africa.  Along the way the tour guide points out the variety of animals that can be spotted on the savanna.  Some days you’ll spot hippopotamuses in the water, elephants meandering around, lions snoozing, and various animals such as gazelle and giraffe grazing and trotting along on the open plains.  You just never know what you might spot on your tour, or what might spot YOU!
