Animal Kingdom


My favorite park in DisneyWorld is always Animal Kingdom. Having dreamed of going to the African Serengeti since I was little, Disney gives me a little taste of it to hold me over until I can go see the real thing. There is something about the art, the music, the landscape, the culture, and the animals of Africa that feels rhythmic, honest, and full of personality.

The sable antelope is the symbol of the Harambe Wildlife Preserve, where the safari tours take place.

Wildebeest nap in the shade, a mother elephant and her baby stroll past a baobab tree, and okapi and bongos hide amongst the leaves in the forest.

Giraffes lope gracefully along the open hills.

Hippos bob like corks in the river.

Rhinos, zebra, and ostriches dot the grasslands in a vibrating tapestry.

Deeper in the forest, the shy okapi nibble on leaves.

Brilliant yellow weaver birds flicker through the dense canopy.

Blue cichlids glow in the cool, shady riverbed.
