Matt Anderson's Take
Kilimanjaro Safaris is one of the big attractions at Disney's Animal Kingdom and one everyone should experience. You're likely to see more animals on this one ride than you would at a day in most zoos.

The ride itself is an 18 minute bus ride through the African savanna. It's really just a modified bus that holds a lot of people and isn't on a track, though it does follow a very specific path. While it is slow moving, it does get a little bouncy and bumpy in parts.

Bring your camera because you'll be able to take plenty of photographs of over 34 exotic animal species that include baboons, rhinos, cheetahs, crocodiles, elephants, giraffes, hippos, hyenas, lions, warthogs, zebras, and many more. The nighttime experience, while the same overall ride, is unique in that you get to see the nocturnal habits of the savanna's various animals.

Love seeing all of the animals on this ride and Disney does a great job of making sure you see lots of them.

Love seeing all of the animals and is as close to a real safari as I'll likely ever get. Go in the morning before it gets hot and the animals hide.

If you're looking to see a large variety of animals then this is the way to do it. The wait is usually ridiculously long so either go when the park opens or grab a FastPass for it. The story on the ride is a little on the lame side and I'm not sure why they need it, would make more sense to just roll out on a regular old safari to see the wildlife.
