Description And Comments

Gorilla Falls Exploration Trail is one of the more zoo-like elements of Disney's Animal Kingdom. Guests walk along a lovely winding path past enclosures inhabited by African animals. As you no doubt expect, the trail culminates in a wonderfully large western lowland gorilla exhibit. Along the way are meerkats, zebras, hippos, and an aviary full of African birds.

Touring Tips

Being near the exit to Kilimanjaro Safaris, Gorilla Falls tends to get waves of crowds as safari trucks unload. The paths are almost never full, so visit anytime, but early in the morning gets you some relative alone time with the animals.

Special Comments

For many years prior to May 2016, this attraction was called Pangani Forest Exploration Trail, so if you remember a different name, you're not going crazy. Well, not because of that anyway.
