After the show we split up again. This time it was for a very good reason. My sister and I were going on the Wild Africa Trek! It was time for us to go to the meeting area.

 We checked in and about 15 minutes before the tour as recommended. The rest of our group soon arrived. It was a small group this time, there were only six of us. This was nice as it didn’t feel crowded and we were able to ask any questions that we wanted. Warning, they took a lot of picture for us during the tour so this part is picture heavy.

 The tour started with us being taken behind scenes to be fit with all of our gear.

 They first took us through the Pangani trail. They gave us a guided tour and taught us a lot about the animals in the area. We spent some time with the bird and learning about their habits. They were really beautiful and it was nice to have someone pointing out the different types.

After our walk through the trail it was time for us to go behind scenes. We started with the hippos. We were even able to watch them feed them.

 After we left the hippos it was time to go over our first set of rope bridges. This part was really cool, they have the bridges over the alligators and crocodiles. We learned a lot about the crocodiles. For example, they are the only animals that our always on set. The only time they are taken back is for their medical checks and if Disney is expecting a bad storm or hurricane.

Once we were done here, it was time to move to our safari truck for the rest of our tour. We also got to lose the gear, which was nice as it was heavy. This part of the tour was a really long and in-depth safari. It was really nice, as we were able to pull over and go in areas that you don’t get to go in on the regular safari. We spent like 20 minute just hanging out with some giraffes.

About half way through the safari part of the tour, it was time for lunch. This was one of the most relaxing lunches I have ever had. The area that they set it up in was sooo nice. You have near 360 views of the savannah. The weather was perfect, warm with a nice breeze. There were animals all around. You get like 30 minutes to just eat and walk around.

 They ask if you have any dietary restrictions when you sign up for the tour. All of the food for lunch is provided by tusker house. There were able to prepare an all vegan menu that was absolutely delicious. They serve it to you in the really neat lunch boxes. I wish I know where I could get one.

 All too soon our tour was over. They told us that a portion of our tour fees would be donated to and animal charity of our choosing. Both my sister and I chose Big Cats.

 This was a really great tour and I would totally do it again.
