Okay we were not really let loose on the savanna but we felt like we got to explore all the little places you cannot see from the public viewing areas or your balcony if you are lucky, and you get up close and almost personal with many of the animals. In addition prepare to learn from your animal keeper tour guide. They have so much knowledge and know these animals intimately. This safari can be booked by any guests staying at Animal Kingdom Lodge and includes dinner at Jiko. Guests must be at least 8 years of age, and the cost is $170 per person. Since this is a photo blog, I am going to quit talking and start showing you some incredible pictures!

“Bubba”, he has had an ear infection and holds his head at an angle

Impala and Nayala
Waterbuck (I am 99% sure)
and who knew ostriches were so curious?
