Kilimanjaro Safari and your Homeschool
Before you go to Disney’s Animal Kingdom, take a few minutes at least to look up some of the animals you’ll see. Or do an in-depth study of them…whichever fits your fancy. And just in case you were wondering…yes, these are real animals we’re talking about, not audio-animatronics.
Here are just some of the animals you might see on the Kilimanjaro Safari:
- Black Rhinoceros
- Pink-backed Pelican
- Yellow-backed Duiker
- Yellow-billed Stork
- Nile Crocodile
- Nile Hippopotamus
- White-bearded Wildebeest
- African Elephant
- African Lion
- Scimitar-horned Oryx
- White Rhinoceros
Instead of trying to learn about every single animal on the safari, consider choosing a handful to study and focus on.
