A walk-through trail that allows you a closer look at a few of the residents of the Harambe Wildlife Reserve, including Western Lowland Gorillas. You’ll also find an underwater viewing area that allows looks at hippopotamus, as well as the park’s Animal Rehabilitation Center.

Like its counterpart in the Asia area, this walking path will amaze you with terrific design, interesting animals, and cast members that will tell you whatever you want to know. 9/10

Terrific walking experience. I thoroughly enjoyed the ability to spend as much, or as little, time in each area depending on my interest of the animals on display.
Please parents, keep your kids in line. The screaming and monkey noises they are making ruin an otherwise beautiful display.

I love Silverback Gorillas, so I found this Trail to be amazing. I especially enjoyed watching the Gorillas drag their blankets to a spot to lay down at. The baby was adorable!

It's well worth your time to explore this enveloping forest of fun, but some areas do get crowded. 9/10.

Very cool trail to walkthrough. Its so cool to see gorillas and know Disney is protecting them from poachers.

Very nice way to get away from the crowds. The animals you'll encounter here are pretty nice to see because it's not every day you see these animals.

Another amazing trail, and a great companion piece to Maharaja. The Gorillas are insanely fun to watch as they interact.

Animals tend to be more active in the morning so I would recommend doing Kilmanjaro Safaris fist and then a nature trail or two early in the day. This trail is my favorite because of the silverback gorillas. The nature trails are a lot of fun because you get to control the pace and you can stay in a habitat for as long or as little as you want.

Much better than a zoo. The exhibits are very large with beautiful plants, and tons of animals. You get to see quite a few gorillas with great views, and the aviary is also very nice with a variety of gorgeous birds.
