The signature attraction at Disney's Animal Kingdom, Kilimanjaro Safaris takes guests on a real off-roading adventure past real animals (with seemingly no fences) that takes place on a parcel of land equal in size to the entire Magic Kingdom park.

From 2016, an evening version of the ride, dubbed Kilimanjaro Safaris: After Dark is also on offer. The Imagineers have carefully recreated the look of the sunset's glow with special lighting that will allow guests to enjoy this attraction after the sun has gone down. Though some species will not be out during the evening hours (and there might be some daily downtime while the "day shift" is moved into their evening lodgings), the park has recently introduced nocturnal species like African wild dogs and hyenas that should be active during late hours.
