PHOTOS – A look around the Maharajah Jungle Trek in Animal Kingdom

    We spent some time yesterday morning walking through the Maharajah Jungle Trek. If you haven’t been, the Maharajah Jungle Trek is located in Asia behind Kali River Rapids. It features animals from the Asian region and is wonderfully themed to the area. Here are some of our pictures!

    Entering the Trek, you’re immediately surrounded by the jungle. Trees constantly provide a canopy (and tough photography conditions).


    Just before the bat exhibit is a new enclosure for Lion-Tailed Macaques. There are three females and one male.

    Due to foggy enclosure glass and a bad angle from the sun, we weren’t able to get a good shot of the Macaques. Here’s a shot from the Disney Parks Blog instead.

    Entering the bat exhibit.

    Bats are actually very active during the day and like to sleep at night!

    Next up was the tiger pen.

    She likes to look back at the animals behind her. Lucky for them, she would have to jump clear across a large gap and make it over a fence in one daring attempt. She prefers to just have food delivered to her.


    It’s between the tiger pen and fowl area that we get to enjoy some of the best theming in the Trek.

    The Trek ends with an aviary.

    The Maharajah Jungle Trek is self-guided and closes roughly 1 hour before sunset each day. Next time you’re at Animal Kingdom and looking for something you may not have experienced in a while (or ever!), carve out an hour for a wonderful trek through the jungles of Asia at the Maharajah Jungle Trek.
