The Frog Family Experience

"This is a self-guided walking tour that features native African wildlife. Tad and Lily enjoy it since they can take their time around exhibits that interest them most without feeling rushed. They especially love the hippos since they're the same ones they saw on Kilimanjaro Safaris. Warn the little ones before the gorilla's a 'quiet' zone."

Tips & Fun Facts

The aptly named Pangani means "place of enchantment" in Swahili. Wear comfortable shoes. The relatives of both Pumbaa and Timon from Disney's "The Lion King" live here in Africa - the meerkat and the warthog.

When scouting for animals, watch for signs of critters, like nests, tracks and trails. Be patient when viewing the gorillas - they can be shy.
