Pangani Forest Exploration Trail

[Disney Vacation Planner]

At A Glance  


The Pangani Forest Exploration Trail is a self-guided walking safari through a number of exhibits, including a live Gorilla exhibit, where the (real) Gorillas are separated from the guests by glass partitioning, and in a couple of cases by bars in the shape of simulated bamboo poles, which are carefully mixed in with real bamboo plants in a random enough patter for them to be almost overlooked.

The Pangani Forest Exploration Trail allows some of the best close up animal viewing in the park, aside from possibly the Kilimanjaro Safari. Park visitors come face-to-face with African birds, mamals, rodents, reptiles and insects, as well as gorillas in their natural habitat. A western lowland gorilla was one of the first animals to give birth at the new theme park.

Guests wind their way through a maze of habitats, catching glimpses of animals all along the way. There are also interactive exhibits and expert trainers to answer questions and offer insights along the way.

The trail takes the guest past the Blind Mole Rat's home, an Aviary, a Fish Tank, and through a Hippo Underlook exhibit.

Note that no flash photography is allowed on the Pangani Forest Exploration Trail.
