Jambo! (or Hello in English) is just one of the words you’ll learn in Swahili while trekking through Animal Kingdom’s central African landscape. You may feel like you’re in Africa, thanks in part to the Floridian heat, but mostly to the creativity of the Imagineers that have created this vibrant, colorful, and musical land.
Who You’ll See
Simba, Timon, Pumba and friends performing at the Festival of the Lion King live stage musical.

What You’ll Do
