Kilimanjaro Safaris at Animal Kingdom | Walt Disney World

Filed in Gather Travel Essential by on February 27, 2011 0 Comments

The Kilimanjaro Safari Ride was one of my favorite rides at Animal Kingdom (next to Expedition Everest).  It is a fun little ride, and you get to see a lot of cool animals, and some of them are pretty close to you.  I’d recommend getting a Fast Pass for it, and ask to sit in the back…that way you have more time to get better pictures.  :)

Her friend didn’t want to be a part of it.

One thing I learned about flamingos is that they don’t turn pink until they’ve eaten plenty of food high in beta carotene. That’s why some of these are so light in color — they haven’t eaten enough shrimp!
