The official Disney blog today released a few details
of an upcoming experience to take place at Disney's Animal Kingdom in Kilimanjaro Safaris. It sounds similar to at least part of the concept put forward over the last couple of years for the much rumored Animal Kingdom boutique park, that would have featured experience-type adventures as a stand-alone ticketed adventure. No information yet is available on pricing or when the experience will start.
"If you’ve ever wanted to venture off the beaten path and farther into the Kilimanjaro Safaris Expedition savannah, you’ll have a chance later this year. Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park will be offering a new, immersive experience that’ll take a small group of Guests on personalized, guided treks along some unexplored areas of the Harambe Reserve. During the excursions, you’ll be able to spend more time observing the wildlife on the savannah and have a chance to learn about the animals and their behaviors from one of our Disney guides. Adventurers will also trek through an undeveloped forest area of the Harambe Reserve and then board a unique vehicle specially designed for the rest of the quest. Walt Disney Imagineers are still working on many of the details but we wanted to share the news with you first. Reservations for this specially priced tour won’t begin until later this year, so keep checking back for more details."
