This Time for Africa!


One of the greatest perks about working for Disney is that we have certain discounts offered to us on certain excursions put on by Disney. One of the ones that my roommate Sarah and I took advantage of was called the Wild Safari Trek. It takes place in Animal Kingdom, in the Africa section. You basically get to go backstage and walk through the habitats where the animals are kept on the Safari. 

Sarah and I had been looking at doing the Trek for a couple weeks when we finally decided to bite the bullet and just do it. We planned it for a time when Sarah's boyfriend was going to be in town, as a surprise for him. He was a really good sport about it, and ended up liking the trip. 

It was about a four hour trip, we walked for the first two hours looking at the animals, and going back stage in Animal Kingdom, and for the next two hours we rode around and we had a lunch as well. It was so cool because whenever you go on the Safari, you only get to see the animal for a few seconds. However, on the Trek you get to stay with the animal for twenty minutes or so. 

The animal trainers were able to spend time and talk to us about what they did with the animals, and how they trained them. We were able to see the animals up close and personal, and that was really amazing. My favorite part of the day was when we got to stop out in the middle of the Africa scene where the elephants, and giraffes were. We ate lunch there, which was prepared for us by the chefs from Tusker House, which was one of the restaurants in Animal Kingdom. I definitely think that it was one of the better decisions that Sarah and I made.
