Maharajah Jungle Trek
Walk a winding path through ancient ruins in a lush Asian setting. Tigers, tapir, fruit bats, deer, antelope, a Komodo dragon, and a walk-through aviary filled with tropical birds highlight this beautifully designed zoo. Artfully hidden barriers make you feel like you can reach out and touch the animals, but fortunately for them (and us) you can’t. Cast members are on hand to enrich your animal-viewing adventure. We think the tigers, aviary, and bats are the highlights, but you’ll find your own favorites. Be sure to pick up a guidemap on your way in. Animal lovers may be tempted to spend hours here—bring your camera! Wheelchair accessible. Allie’s KidTip: “Tigers! How many can you find?”Get a full copy of PassPorter's Walt Disney World guidebook here.

Like a zoo on steroids. What a fun way for the kids to mix education along with a fun Disney vacation.

The aviary is amazing and a great place for kids and adults alike to appreciate the diversity of our planet.

My husband turns into a little kid getting to the tiger and bat exhibits. The tigers are beautiful and so close you feel that you could touch (not to worry - they're behind a glass barrier). The bats, however, have no barrier. Fortunately, they don't seem to be interested in humans and being nocturnal they stay in one place for you to observe.

We didn't see any tigers, but It was still a beautiful trail.

The Animal Kingdom is about the animals and this walk lets you see plenty. Not laid out well, needed to back track.

I am biased because I love tigers. One time I saw them frolicking in their pool, and I stayed for about 20 minutes. Cast members are nearby so you can ask questions.

This is the better walk through IMO. The birds, the bats, the big cats! The shade and the artwork on the "ruins" makes this a gem.

Don't pass this up because it is a walk-thru. Beautiful vegistation and lots of animals.

we must have missed a huge chunk of this, I only remember two animals, tigers and bats. We did not see a single cast member.

The tigers sit very close to the viewing areas, giving opportunities for great photos.
