Pangani Forest Exploration
[Disney Vacation Planner]
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.
