For our 4th day of fun we returned to the Animal Kingdom… We didn’t manage to get everything done we wanted to do yesterday so after an early start we returned and the first thing we did was head to ‘Dinoland USA’ and go on a journey back in time to see some dinosaurs…..as you do… This was a fun kid friendly rollercoaster with various prehistoric friends popping out to say hello along the way!


Then after a stroll across the park and back into Asia we went on a Maharajah Jungle Trek, another self guided tour. Similar to yesterdays trek we encountered many a beast along the way starting with a beautiful huge komodo dragon….

…then it was on to a cool reptile house and some giant bats (they were cool/creepy looking things!)…

….a huge aviary full of very beautiful and exotic birds (that made the humble pigeon look a little pathetic in comparison)….

…and two gorgeous tigers… unfortunately for me/you I was looking the other way when one yawned/roared… doh!

As lunch time approached we returned to Africa (enjoying some music on route) and all had an amazing lunch in the Harambe Market… My african style ribs with chickpea and tomato salad/carrot/papaya salad was seriously good!!

Then it was time to say good by to Animal Kingdom… even now 8 days into the holiday probably one of my favourite parks….
