I love looking at animals. Going to the zoo is so much fun it’s something that I’ve loved since I was a little girl. When I was in college I started a tradition of going to the zoo for my birthday every year and once I had kids we continued that tradition. This year we went to Northwest Trek as a family. It’s a wildlife preserve where you go into the animals’ natural habitat on a tram and watch them. Which is similar to Animal Kingdom’s Wild Africa Trek, only the Wild Africa Trek is African animals in their habitat and on a much grander scale. I went to Wild Africa Trek a few months ago and it was AMAZING……..
Maybe I should start at the beginning. First thing is you have to get all dressed up in your hiking gear along with your harness for the chord that keeps you safe as you hang over crocodiles and hungry hippos. I felt like Indiana Jones as I courageously crossed the rickety bridge with missing planks.
I’m trying to think about what my favorite part was and I’m torn between watching the Hippo play in the water or if it was eating the amazing food. The food was outstanding, like eating at a 5 star restaurant, as if I’ve ever done that before (I haven’t by the way, but the food was AMAZING). There was smoked salmon, shrimp, fruit, pita and hummus. I’m getting hungry again just thinking about all this good food.
The food was good and hanging out with friends is always the best.
What animals will you see? You’ll see Lions, Cheetahs, Giraffes, Hippos, Alligators, Monkeys, Ostriches, Flamingos, Elephants, and Antelopes. You will have a great time, I did. I love doing adventurous things. I always thought I was shy and scared, but I’m finding that I am a thrill seeker that loves doing things. I love going outside and just living life to the fullest. This was an amazing adventure and I’ve seen animals closer than I ever thought I would. Enjoy these photos taken by Disney.
