Disney Removes Kilimanjaro Safaris Pre-Show Video with Warden Wilson Mutua. This month, Disney’s Animal Kingdom featured a new introductory video on Kilimanjaro Safaris. The pre-show video has gone through many transformations over the years. Initially the video introduced an adventure story to stop poachers from hunting a mother elephant and her baby, dubbed “Big Red and Little Red” by the iconic “Simba 1” team, but that aspect of the attraction has been removed to make the trip more family friendly and less shocking to guests of all ages.
The official synopsis of the Disney’s Animal Kingdom attraction reads: “Explore the Harambe Wildlife Reserve, home to 34 species living in 110 acres of picturesque open plains, shady forest landscapes and rocky wetlands. Your rugged safari vehicle is driven by an expert guide, who helps point out animals and shares fascinating wildlife facts during this extraordinary 18-minute expedition. Spot a shy hippopotamus nestled in a still pond. Behold a regal lion sunbathing on a rocky perch. Drive past a gentle giraffe grazing on the tall trees or wave hello to a swinging baboon. Other amazing animals you may encounter include rhinos, cheetahs, crocodiles, elephants, hyenas and zebras—and so many more! Since animals have minds of their own, every expedition is a unique and unforgettable experience. Be sure to keep your eyes open and have a camera ready—you never know what you’ll see on a Kilimanjaro Safaris outing.”
On a recent tour of Kilimanjaro Safaris we stopped to get a video of the new pre-show that shows the absence of Warden Wilson Mutua (played by Abdoulaye NGom). Check out the video shared on our Instagram page:
