If you’ve ever visited Disney’s Animal Kingdom, then you know that the park is home to a wide variety of species from around the world!
Just take a ride on the Kilimanjaro Safaris and you’ll see! There are giraffes, elephants, lions, and so many others spread throughout the ride’s various habitats. We’ve been able to catch a glimpse at what these animals’ lives are like behind the scenes with documentaries and backstage tours, but recently, we saw two animals getting the “star treatment” right in front of our eyes!
While taking a ride on Kilimanjaro Safaris, we got the chance to see an okapi photoshoot in action — look at them pose!
A Cast Member was snapping some pictures of the okapi and they seemed to be loving it, turning their heads to give her a look at their “best side.” Who knew they were so photogenic?!
If you’ve ever been on the safari ride, then you’ll likely know that the okapis are closely related to giraffes, even though it looks like they have the legs of a zebra. One thing they share in common with their giraffe relatives is their incredibly long tongues — they’re over a foot long!
Wow, we were honored to witness such an occasion, and hopefully, we’ll see more fun moments on our next safari! Stay tuned to AllEars for the latest in Disney parks news and updates.
