Gorilla Falls Exploration Trail
Animal lovers will stroll enthralled through this exhibit of African wildlife in an artfully built natural habitat. African birds, hippos, meerkats, and a troop of gorillas make their home here. Hands-on exhibits in the naturalist’s hut add interest. A habitat—the Endangered Animal Rehabilitation Centre—calls attention to the African bushmeat crisis. The meerkat viewing area is especially popular, and plan to spend extra time in the aviary. Walk slowly or sit, and the wonders will unfold. Allow several hours if you love to watch animals. Early morning or late afternoon is the best time to visit. Wheelchair accessible. Closed captioning. Alex’s KidTip: “The animals can’t get close to you. It’s ok!” Name changed from Pangani Forest Exploration Trail in May 2016.Get a full copy of PassPorter's Walt Disney World guidebook here.

The animals are fascinating to watch. The Gorilla's are great. Especially the little ones. It can get crowded here.

Yet another way to sneak some education in our family vacation. Funny thing is the kids don't mind and they are enjoying it.

Great views of animals, and a cooler place to take your time on a hot day.

We always end up spending more time here than planned; so much to see, especially the Gorillas.

A nice stroll in a shady environment. Lots of animals to see and take pictures of. Love the silverback gorillas. After passing through that exhibit, watch the surrounding forested areas. We have run into gorillas that are not behind the glass. Of course, they are protected from the humans by Disney's hidden barricades but quite lovely to see them outside of the fish bowl!

relaxing walk through with much shade and nice misting fans for hot weather. Typical animals of any major zoo.

A wonderful walk-thru, not to be missed. The gorillas & meerkats are the best.

My personal favorite are the gorillas. I also love when you can see the hippos underwater.
