    Do you think this is one that would be best done earlier rather than later, a bit like the safari?

    I think earlier in the day is better, before it gets too warm for the animals.

    How much is the tour? Sounds expensive if the discount is $50.

    That's very expensive. Over $500 for the two of us to (in my opinion) not really see much more than we would at the park anyway.
    This is what puts me off a lot of the animal related tours. Take the shark viewing at Discovery Cove at 'x' amount. I can basically do the same thing for free at SeaWorld and not get wet :unsure:

    :wiggle: We're doing this on the 10th so I will relay Jordan's review...since I am doing the *adapted* version, his will be more comprehensive.

    They do offer tours much earlier...starting at 8am...but those aren't included for the discount. We got incredibly lucky..I let my niece book since she's currently there on the college program and for all three of us it's only $222!

    Oh, it does include a lunch of some sort and a CD of pictures.

    If anyone is interested, Lou Mongello did a short video review of it a few months back. Just search for it on wdwradio.com (hope that's OK to put a link).

    Herself and I have thought about doing this tour. Herself did the Dolphin Experience a few years ago with her sister. Yes, it was pricey but they learned so much about dolphins, and the way Disney "runs" their aquatic habitats that they felt every cent was worth it.

    One of the benefits of a comprehensive tour is the total experience that includes not just "looking" but learning about all that goes on behind the scenes with Disney. I think the safari tour will be wonderful.

    Figment, we'll be waiting to hear all about your experience!

    One of our science teachers received an enrichment grant this year and did this tour, as well as an air & space experience at Kennedy Space Center and a marine biology experience at Seaworld. Below is the video he made for the Wild Africa Trek. He said it was by far his favorite experience of the three. (He also asks that you forgive his "novice" film editing - this was his first time creating something in iMovie :wink: ).

    Just got home last night...flight 3 hours late! But wanted to reply to this right away...longer review will follow. THIS. WAS. AMAZING! I cannot say enough about how wonderful a time we had on Monday. I had my own personal guide along the Pangani Trail (since I am in an ECV)..his name was Shane. He was delightful and full of wonderful knowledge. He also arranged other animal handlers along the trail to speak to me about the birds and gorillas...my own private little demonstrations. He took tons of pictures which will be mailed to us on a CD within a few weeks.

    The *kids* (16 & 22) took amazing photos along the bridge route and just raved about the experience.
