Safari Celebration Dinner

In this Grand Gatherings Experience, guests gather in the exotic city of Harambe at Disney's Animal Kingdom® for high adventure on the Kilimanjaro Safari.

Parties journey through the park's authentic African plains and across the sweeping, baobab-studded savanna, spotting giraffes, elephants and other wild African creatures with their own private guide.

Following this special safari, guests move to the Tusker House Restaurant where they meet their host who welcomes them to a delicious dinner consisting of chicken, vegetables, assorted Artesian breads and more.

During dinner, guests have the opportunity to get an up close animal experience with one of the Animal Programs Keepers, who arrive with a live animal and answer any questions that guests may have about the Kilimanjaro Safari or Disney's Animal Kingdom®.

As a special part of the celebration, the host introduces two very special residents of Disney's Animal Kingdom® who wanted to stop by, Terk and Timon! Guests have the opportunity to enjoy a meet-and-greet with these loveable Disney characters.
