One of the main rides at Animal Kingdom is the Kilimanjaro Safaris. Set on the edge of a fictitious African town named Harambe, the Kilimanjaro Safaris transports guests to Africa in 32-passenger large open-sided motor vehicles driven by a nature guide. The environment surrounding the ride path is filled with the types of vegetation and wild animal species typical of the African wilderness making it feel like you've left Florida. Excitement on the ride path includes animals in their natural habitat and a journey over an old bridge that collapses halfway across.

One of the biggest complaints many zoo fans have is that Kilimanjaro Safari animals are only viewable from the bumpy ride which only pauses a few seconds near each animal.

Tip: To see even more animals visit the Animal Kingdom Lodge (for free, you don't have to stay there to view the animals).
