“Up Close with Rhinos” Tour Coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Starting November 1st

A new tour at Disney’s Animal Kingdom centered on their white rhinos is coming in November.

“Up Close with Rhinos” is an hour-long, backstage guided tour that explores how the park’s animal team takes care of the white rhinos that roam the savannah on Kilimanjaro Safaris, as well as the efforts Disney is taking to help protect endangered rhinos in the wild. During the tour, guests will get up close with rhinos, and may even have a chance to touch one. Tours will begin on November 1st.

Caitlin Miller, a member of the rhino care team, told the Disney Parks Blog, “I love talking to guests about how unique each individual rhino’s personality is. I know once guests come and meet the rhinos, they are going to see just how amazing they are and will want to help us secure a future for them.”

The tour costs $40 plus tax. Discounts will be available to select passholders and Disney Vacation Club members. Booking will open on World Rhino Day, September 22nd. As there will only be one tour offered each day, advance booking is highly recommended. You can call 407-WDW-PLAY (407-939-7529) to book a tour.
