Maharajah Jungle Trek | Disney World Description
On the Maharajah Jungle Trek, embark on a self-guided walking tour of Southeast Asia—home to tigers, dozens of bird species, a flying fox and a Komodo dragon.
The Wild of Asia Awaits
Venture into the mystical Anandapur Royal Forest, a tropical paradise of trees, ruins and wild animals. Legend has it the area was at one time the hunting ground of wealthy maharajahs; today, it exists as a preserve that you can explore.
Follow the Path
Navigate sunny trails beneath a canopy of swaying trees and discover a wonderland of wild creatures in their natural habitats. Cross towering footbridges, roam around jungle bends, behold cascading waterfalls and stand in the shadow of a centuries-old palace—frozen in time. Then, explore a chirping aviary where curious birds swoop down and soar all around you.
Some of the animals you may come across include:
- Asian tiger
- Elds deer
- Komodo dragon
- Malayan flying fox
- Water buffalo
- Over 50 species of birds
Along the way, snap pictures of exotic creatures from observation stations and learn more about worldwide conservation efforts that help keep them safe.
