There are two attractions in the Africa section. As soon as you enter Africa, guests are strolling through the African Village of Harambe and heading toward the Harambe Wildlife Preserve, where you can experience an African safari in an open-air jeep. As you exit Kilimanjaro Safaris, the entrance to the Pangani Forest Exploration Trail is straight ahead. If you want to get even closer to the animals, as of 2010 a Wild Africa Trek has been added to list of Disney magic you can experience for an extra cost.
Kilimanjaro Safaris is an attraction that has gone through story line changes over the years. When originally opened, it had a story line of capturing poachers and saving Big Red, and even had wardens aboard the jeeps. Today, the focus of the attraction is more on the animals along the safari with the poacher story line taking a back seat. For me, I actually enjoy just listening to details about the animals. I wouldn't be bothered if the story line were dropped completely. Though I have never been to Africa and experienced a true African safari, I can say that I feel like this is just what it must be like. As you make your way around the Harambe Wildlife Preserve in your jeep, you observe animals in habitats that Disney created to replicate their habitats in Africa.
I no longer consider Disney's Animal Kingdom a half day park. We take at least an entire day to take everything in, talk to cast members about all the types of animals and enjoy all that it has to offer. It is an amazing way for the Walt Disney Company to bring Walt's love of animals to life.
