DDW Pic 95. Kilimanjaro Safaris

Kilimanjaro Safaris
One of my favorite attractions in Walt Disney World is the Kilimanjaro Safaris at the Animal Kingdom. It isn't necessarily the ride or even the animals that amaze me. What impresses me so much about this attraction is that this 100 acre African savannah was literally "created" by Disney. This picture was taken back in June of 2002, and it looks like we are out in the middle of Africa. The temperature on this particular summer day made it feel like Africa too.  The landscape looks like it has been there forever, yet just four years earlier this entire area was just  completely flat dirt! There is simply no better company than Disney at creating incredible attractions that truly immerse you in a completely different place or time. There is nothing artificial on the "safari" that makes you think you are in a theme park.
