If its animals you want, then make a beeline for Kilimanjaro Safari's, a rugged jeep excursion around savannah plains, dense forest habitats and watering holes that come together to form the Harambe Reserve, home to such animals as lions, giraffes, rhinos, elephants and zebras to name but a few. See how the animals react and in some cases interact within an environment as close to the real thing as you'll find outside the African continent.

Tips & Fun Facts

Although animals are typically more active in mornings and during cooler weather, Kilimanjaro Safaris has great animal viewing in both the morning and afternoon.
The safari offers numerous photo opportunities of animals (if they're awake) so keep those camera's close at hand. The bumpiness of the terrain and constant motion can make picture taking tricky though.

The safari vehicles are modified GM trucks, and go a maximum of 10mph. Each can hold a maximum of 32 guests.
The savannah plains stretch for a huge 110 acres.
The rocks that you'll often see the lions on are actually climate controlled to encourage them to sit or lie in view of safari guests.
