The Maharajah Jungle Trek is a very adventurous walk-through exhibit. It not only has tigers but also flying foxes (a bat species) and many different kinds of Asian birds. There are also Komodo Dragons, Elds Deer, Fruit Bats and more.
When you first walk into the Jungle you come to see a Komodo Dragon. As you will see these large reptiles look nothing like dragons, and if you think your children may be afraid most likely they will not. These “dragons” just look like lizards. Next you used to see a Malayan Tapir. These animals are black on their legs and front half, but white on the rear half of their body. But they're gone now. Soon you will then enter a building where you will see the fruit bats and flying foxes. Unlike other bat species these animals eat fruit.
After leaving the bats you will come across something that looks like ancient ruins. In there you will see the Asian tigers outside the glass. There are several areas where you can watch the tigers. You will walk across a bridge and then see 2 species of deer, the Elds Deer and the Blackbuck. They both are supposed to look like they are being hunted by the tigers, but they are separated by a hidden barrier, so the deer are not in danger. You will then walk into an exhibit with many different Asian birds. You can borrow a guide to help you identify all the different kinds of birds.
As you can see, the Maharajah Jungle Trek is a fun, adventurous and educational attraction in the Animal Kingdom. While being great to do with kids parents will love it too. We hope you enjoy the Maharajah Jungle Trek.
