Hidden Gems of Animal Kingdom

This page wouldn't be complete to us if we didn't mention the amazing areas to wander and take a break. Animal Kingdom is a park that truly deserves a slow, casual touring style. Have you really explored all the paths in the Oasis area or around the Tree of Life? There are so many animals to see in their lush landscaped environments. With everyone else rushing off to the rides, you'll often have these areas to yourself.

Pangani Forest Trail - this self-paced walking trail exhibits animals found in Africa. Find the entrance near the Kilimanjaro Safari.

Maharajah Jungle Trek
- Another self-paced walking trail that is home to animals from Asia. The entrance is located near the seating area for the counter service Yak & Yeti.

Both of these trails are do not miss attractions. The themeing, architecture, and landscaping in these trails make you forget you're in a theme park and you almost believe you truly have been transported to another place. I have never had an issue with bringing a beverage into the trail - hey, gotta stay hydrated on the trek, right?

Tigers, lizards, deer, bats, hippos, fish, meerkats, and gorillas are just a few of the animals you will encounter on these trails. Be sure to take your time on this journey and feel free to ask questions to any of the 'guides' throughout the trail. They'll often point out little details or fill you in on some stories that you would otherwise miss.

A cold beer is a great hiking companion.  That, and tigers, make for a fun afternoon.

Excellent! The Marharaja Jungle Trek is one of DAK's BEST hidden gems. We love strolling, beer in hand, and checking up on the tigers or sitting in the aviary.
