MAHARAJAH JUNGLE TREK


Take a self-guided stroll into the walkways of the mythical village of Anandapur, a land of ancient ruins and lush vegetation. Countless different species of wildlife, from the impressive Komodo dragon to the majestic Bengal Tiger can be found as you wind you way through the various environments. Nepal, India, Thailand and Indonesia all are represented through architecture, animal carvings and ruins scattered throughout the village.
Even before entering the trek, you'll meet a family of Siamang Gibbons swinging from the ruins of a Nepalese tower to a crumbling monument. Round the bend and you'll be able to view the worlds largest lizard, the Komodo Dragon. The endangered Kapir is next on your travels before entering the rocky habitat of the bats, where both the fruit bat and flying fox species can be viewed. Glass windows give you a great opportunity to see the treks biggest draw, the Bengal Tigers up close. Clusters of trees grow from the ruins of a beautiful tiger shrine. The exotic animals are also visible from the top of a parapet, through a stand of bamboo and from a bridge that stands amid the ruins near an old herb garden. Moving on you reach the plains of the Elds Deer and Blackbuck Antelope, co-existing with several species of bird including the Sarus Crane and White Wing Wood Duck. This then leads you to the final stop along the trek, a spectacular aviary complete with lotus pool and home to a variety of beautiful ground, mud and tree dwelling birds.
Many other surprises can be found on your journey and knowledgeable Cast Members are on hand to explain the finer details of those you may find.

Tips & Fun Facts

The Jungle Trek doesn't get as crowded as Pangani Forest and is a good choice for midday viewing when the main attractions are at there busiest. However, some of the animals such as the Tigers may not be at their most active during the hottest times of day.

Notice there is no glass between you and some of the fruit bats. This is possible because bats have no interest in human interaction whatsoever.
Here is the list of animal species you may see during the Jungle Trek :-

Between the two tiger exhibits, on the right hand wall past the archway you'll see a mural of a tiger in a river. Look closely at the water under the tiger, a pattern of swirls form a hidden Mickey.

As you enter the building with the murals of 4 kings, the first king on the left has a gold earring that forms a tri-circle Mickey.

As you exit the building with the murals of 4 kings, look up above and to the left of the king on your left. The hidden Mickey is made up of three clouds.
