ORLANDO, Fla – The Kilimanjaro Safari at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is home to lions, elephants, hippos and Nile crocodiles.
Now, guests can add Nigerian dwarf goats to their must-see safari list.
On Tuesday, Disney Imagineers showed off the new experience on social media. Disney said the goats are originally from Nigeria and are considered valuable because of their high-protein milk. Guests will see the goats eat, sleep and play among a new warden outpost on the edge of the savanna.
“To prepare for the new Nigerian dwarf goats that just joined the herd, Kyle Price, the park’s Imagineering art director and our set decoration team collaborated with Disney’s Animals, Science and Environment team to create a warden’s outpost that fits within the storyline and feels authentic to Africa,” Disney imagineers said in an Instagram post.
Guests can get up close with the goats at the affection section at Rafiki’s Planet Watch, which has now reopened to guests.
