Experiences on Kilimanjaro Safaris
Hi all! I just wanted to share a fun experience while on Kilimanjaro Safaris.
I was in WDW not too long ago, and the people I was with were very excited to go on the Safari. We had boarded our safari vehicle, and we started off on our tour. Soon after the start of the ride, we reached the savannah (where many giraffes vacate). We saw a species of cattle, and one giraffe all feeding. Suddenlu, two of the cattle stopped in front of our vehicle. We waited for a few minutes ( a great photo op) but it wouldn't move... There were at least 3 or 4 (that I could see) ride vehicles backing up behind us. Finally, our driver called in the ranger and within a minute, two women pulled up in a pickup truck, called the cattle by name, and it slowly moved from in front of our car. As we started our journey, we couldn't help but laugh. Personally, my car doesn't get held up by cattle every day!
So now, if you've had any funny animal experiences on Kilimanjaro Safaris, or anywhere else in AK, just share it on this thread!
A Funny Thing about the Lions
I took a behind the scenes tour of KS mainly to see the lions up close only to find out that the lions were the only animals we had to see like everyone else. Anyway, the lions seem to always be in the same place, usually on top of a rock, laying down. The CM on the tour told us that they have air conditioning vents there for the lions and they love the cool air so much, they never leave. Of course, these vents are well hidden to guests. I also noticed that many of the trees are fancy stroage sheds. I have a pic somewhere.
