A Photo for Today: Temple Ruins

The animals, like the tigers and bats, are the obvious stars of the Maharajah Jungle Trek. But the architecture makes it a different kind of zoological exhibit. Instead of just one exhibit after another, the imagineers built a story line of the old hunting grounds of the Maharajahs, the former rulers of Anandapur.


Here a crumbling temple sets the stage as you continue along the path to another viewing area for the beautiful tigers. You truly feel as if you have stepped into another world. This wall is not part of any exhibit, its just along the path. But it is stuff like this that really transports you into the story.

Bringing an 'Interactive Bioluminescent Forest' to Life

We have been assuming that Disney will do with the Avatar project what it has done with other "major" projects recently, and send us on a years long journey of little tidbits and teasers during the design and construction. And on today's Disney Parks Blog we got another example of just that. Here is a short video released by the Mouse today...


There honestly is nothing new in this video, everything we see here is exactly what we have been expecting to see. But that really doesn't make it any less exciting. There are a few details we now have that truly makes this project look like it has the potential to be a game-changer for theme park design. First is the scale of it all. This photo below show's us the enormity of what we can expect. Just on the other side of what I assume is the bridge to Pandora looks like rough models of people, which makes this rock work archway simply gigantic in comparison.


Another example of this scale is in the screen-capture below. What Tom Staggs and James Cameron are doing here is the same thing Disney designers have been doing with these kinds of models since Walt was running the show. They are getting down to the guest's eye level so they can get a sense of the scale. This means we are going to have some impressively large scenery here.


Another exciting discovery is the very reassuring attention to detail going into the scenery and atmosphere of the surrounding area. Check out the big board behind Cameron and Staggs devoted entirely to documenting the variety of plant life being used. People familiar with Joe Rohde and the design of the rest of the Animal Kingdom will certainly see something they recognize as a very Rohde kind of thing to do. The Animal Kingdomk has one of the great plant collections you will find anywhere, and it appears a few mythical ones are about to join the list.


And as we expected, some of these plants are going to be of the "bioluminescent" kind we find in the movie. Here are just a few examples worth taking a longer look at. Slow the video down and you will see that Imagineers are coming up with quite an extensive variety of these.


But it is not just plants that will come to light at night. The author of the post talks about this being an entire "interactive bioluminescent forest", which apparently means the ground you walk on will also be part of the show. Check out the footprint left behind in the ground in the photo below. Pretty neat, eh? I think it is this bioluminescent alone which will make the park a nighttime must see for guests to Walt Disney World.


This video may not offer any further clue as to the rides being designed and built. This is just basically about the atmosphere and surroundings. But those of us who love DAK appreciate those details which go beyond the attractions just as much. For me at least, the calling card for DAK is the incredible immersive quality of the different areas. And whether you like Avatar or not, it looks as though Joe Rohde is taking this concept to a whole new level with Pandora.

A Photo for Today: Peek-a-Boo

There are thousands of reasons why the "Half-Day Park" thing is such ridiculous nonsense, and just one of them is that you can easily spend a full day just watching and experiencing the wildlife. For instance, if you left after a few hours you might miss this...


It's not every day, nor is it in every theme park, where you can find an endangered gorilla playing a game of "peek-a-boo" with you.

Aruna's Real Africa: Hippo Sightings

In general, when you visit the Kruger National Park, where there is water there will be hippos. In the rivers, in the lakes and in at the waterholes.

Hippos will generally stay in the water all day because their skin, despite being an inch thick, needs to be kept wet to prevent dehydration. So in the summer, the rainy season, you will usually see them like this:

Hippo’s at Shipandani Hide

In the winter, when the water is colder and the sun less harsh they will come out of the water to “sunbathe”. Hippos secrete mucous from their pores that acts as sunscreen and keeps their skin moist. As this mucous is red it looks like they’re sunburnt when in fact it’s the opposite.

Hippo’s warming up on the banks of the Letaba river

At night hippos come out of the water to graze, and they can travel quite a distance looking for food. Also it is surprising the places they can get to, they mark their territory with poop on the way and we have seen hippo poop way up on the hillside and a few miles from any water. Sometimes you will see them grazing on the riverbank late in the afternoon but this time we were lucky enough to find these two on their way back to the river early in the morning.


Now just imagine those 5000 pounds of hippo heading towards you at 15 miles per hour and you know why these are the most dangerous mammals in Africa..

... o yes, and there’s always this...

Babes on Safari

For those of you following the Disney Parks Blog, you will have noticed some new additions to Kilimanjaro Safaris. Babies. Disney announced the birth of a male white rhino, a critically endangered animal. In fact, this is the 9th white rhino born at the Animal Kingdom, a list which also includes the baby's mother and grandmother. And every birth counts.

image copyright Disney
2014 was a terrible year for the rhino. More rhinos were killed in South Africa last year than in recent memory, with over 1200 killed there alone. That's a staggering number especially when you consider how few rhinos are remaining in the wild to begin with. The horn of the rhino is still in high demand as "medicine" in China and Vietnam, the principal reason behind the poaching.



The adorable baby rhino is not the only new addition. The symbol of Harambe itself has a bigger herd. The sable antelope is the animal depicted as the icon of the fictional reserve and five little babies are now on the savanna. Three males and two females were born in late December through January. The animals are beautiful with their deep red coats and long curved horns. But these calves are equally adorable.

image copyright Disney
Fortunately, the sable antelope is not in the same predicament as the white rhino. They are considered "of least concern" by the IUCN in categorizing an animal's conservation status. However, their population is in decline, mostly due to habitat loss, and local populations have suffered. So the sable needs our need too.

Disney's Animal Kingdom News Round-Up for February 18, 2015: Pork Loin, Cookbooks and Construction

Disney Releases Details on Tusker House Dinner: Yesterday, the Disney Parks Blog released some details on the new Tusker House dinner buffet. They describe it as combining the flavors of Boma and Sanaa into one, and oddly enough, they never use the phrase Donald’s Safari Dinner in the entire post. I don’t know about you, but the Kenyan Coffee BBQ Pork Loin and the banana-cinnamon bread pudding with vanilla sauce sounds like enough to get me there.


‘A Cooking Safari with Mickey’ Cookbook Coming Soon: Speaking of the amazing food at the Animal Kingdom Lodge, if you are also a fan of said cuisine, and you know your way around a kitchen, you are in luck. Disney will soon release a cookbook called ‘A Cooking Safari with Mickey’. The book is described as “a collection of recipes showcasing the flavorful cuisine of South Africa and India” and Safari Mike is already getting his grocery shopping list ready.

Even More Construction Walls Coming This Week: Yep, the title of this article is EXACTLY the same as last week’s Round-Up. It isn’t often when I can just cut and past a title, but that’s what we have today. Yet even more walls are going up at DAK.


According to Orlando Park News, additional walls should be going up tonight after the park closes around Expedition Everest. This is more work going on for the Rivers of Light and the work is expected to finish around the end of next month.


Park Hours for this week are...

Wednesday: February 18 8am - 7pm (Extra Magic Hour 7 - 8am)
Thursday: February 19  9am - 7pm
Friday: February 20  9am - 7pm

A Photo For Today: Good Advice

Now, I know Dinoland USA takes its fair share of slack from some Disney pundits. Obviously we dint agree with such opinions. In our mind, the place is beautiful and wonderfully themed. AND it also offers some great advice to pet owners...

AKL Artifact Spotlight: Bamana Empire

Bamana, or Bambara, people are from the present day nation of Mali as well as Senegal and Guinea in western Africa. They are the founders of the once powerful Mali empire from a few hundred years ago as well as the Bamana Empire which was strong at the time of European colonization. Currently, they are predominantly Islamic but often practice a rare version of the religion that incorporates ancestor worship. Bamana tribes developed castes systems with nobility and vassals.


The art work is commonly sold to tourists now, but in the past was an important part of society. Fertility statues, like this one depicting an antelope couple. were kept with wives to ensure fertility. Other statues depicted hunting and farming, and offerings were made to the artwork to promote a good crop or hunt.

Disney's Animal Kingdom News Round-Up for February 11, 2015: One Word...Walls

New Video Construction Update: Most of the news at Disney’s Animal Kingdom these days is about construction, and we have been trying our best to keep up with all the latest on that front. Thankfully The Disney Blog posted a great video montage of all the construction sites at DAK. Not much new info here, but you really get a sense of the just how much of the park is currently behind walls, where exactly those walls are and just how intrusive they are.


Even More Construction Walls Coming This Week: And speaking of construction, it looks like even more walls are going up today in Discovery Island. According to OrlandoParkNews.com new barriers are going being placed today around the Island Mercantile gift shop.


It seems as though sooner or later every single building on Discovery Island will be worked on, and reader Jesse James now has me paranoid that all of this work may, in fact, lead to a complete aesthetic change on the Island to more of the earth tones look of the new Starbucks location. We can only pray this fear is unfounded.

Park Hours for this week are...

Wednesday: February 11  9am - 5pm (Extra Magic Hour 8 - 9am)
Thursday: February 12  9am - 5pm
Friday: February 13  8am - 5pm

Who wants some Retro DAK?

Retro. Its a word that gets thrown around a lot. Its basically synonymous with the good old days, or back when everything was better. Around WDW, people speak fondly of Horizons, Mr. Toad's Wild Ride, and pretty soon Maelstrom. There is some recognition at Disney of the fondness people have for those old times. Epcot merchandise is essentially exclusively the retro 80s style. They brought back Captain EO in all its glory, and they just renamed the Poly, the Polynesian Village - just like the old days.

they should bring back this guy

So it's time to go retro at the Animal Kingdom. We all know that Dinosaur was called Countdown to Extinction when the park opened. And we all know it was a much better name. Much better. The Dinosaur movie was basically forgettable. In fact I am fairly certain no remembers it. So like the Polynesian Village, bring back the name Countdown to Extinction, and enjoy a little good will.



Yes, I know Dinosaur as a name is a bit more straight forward, But I can't imagine people can't figure out that the ride called Countdown to Extinction in the middle of Dinoland is about dinosaurs. And well if they can't there is no helping those people anyway. So change it, it won't cost much.

A Photo for Today: Pretty Pesticides

I stared at this sign for a few minutes trying to figure what the heck it was. Somehow it seemed to be advertising a flower and something to do with mosquitos. It was only after I got home and looked at this photo did I finally notice the phrase "domestic pesticide" on the box.

Amazing Roots of an Icon

For months we have been reporting on some work being done on the Tree of Life, the iconic symbol of Disney's Animal Kingdom. We assumed, as did most others, this work was nothing more then a paint job and some routine maintenance. But last week walls were removed to reveal something gorgeous and unexpected.


Artists and imagineers were actually adding to the already jaw-dropping beauty of the Tree by sculpting some additional roots around the outer reaches of the icon. New animals now adorn the roots, including this amazing tribute to the macaws now often found circling the park.

image copyright Disney
The Disney Parks Blog announced this change late last week and included some terrific photos, some of which we have posted here. But they have a few more as well. Just click here to head over and see their gallery of images.

image copyright Disney
Last week I criticized imagineers for the work they are doing on the new Starbucks location, feeling the new paint scheme was inappropriate for Discovery Island. But these roots have certainly restored my faith in the quality of the changes coming to the park.


Things like this are what really defines much of what a Joe Rohde designed park is all about. Adding these roots is completely unnecessary, and does nothing to excite the bean counters. But they look amazing, and therefore they enhance the guest experience.  And the realism within these sculptures is incredible.

image copyright Disney
And what I really love about these additions is the placement of them. All of what you see here are can be found right on top of the pathway, in the front of the park. You don't have to search for them, they are right there and they clearly make for one heck of a photo op. The website wdwmagic.com has their own gallery of photo and even a walk-through video which helps give you a better idea of where you can find these new roots.

image copyright Disney
We stand and applaud the imagineers for these additions. This is what the Animal Kingdom is all about. For the guests who visit the park in "commando" style, rushing around from one attraction to another, DAK may not be filled with dark rides and fireworks. But it is filled with amazing beauty and artistry, and now it has a bit more. Bravo WDI!

The Naked Mole Rats of Pangani: A Short Video

Here is a brief look at the naked mole rats that you can find on the Pangani Forest Trail. This is the research station. The scientists decided to build the station on the slope of a hill. They discovered this mole rat colony and the scientists have used their good fortune to study this colony.


So what's so special about naked mole rats? No, its not the nudity, it's the fact they are very much like insects. Their society mirrors that of termites. There is a queen and workers (who are sterile) as well as a few breeding males. When the queen dies, a female worker then becomes the queen. 

To say these guys are fascinating is an understatement.

Concept Art Released for Starbucks at DAK

This morning Disney released the first concept art for the interior of the new Starbuck's location coming to the former Creature Comforts gift shop at the Animal Kingdom. Take a look...

image copyright Disney
Let me give you some "full disclosure" regarding my thoughts on this subject first. I make no secret about it, I do not like the idea of Starbucks at DAK. But with that aside, I am not a big fan of this for purely aesthetic reasons as well. This interior matches the newly painted exterior and it just doesn't work. Here is what the color palette looks like that should be used for a building on Discovery Island...


Bright, vibrant and exciting. And here is what a typical interior should klook like...


Bright colors are the concept, the visual thread that spreads throughout Discovery Island. And I guess I just can't wrap my head around why Starbucks couldn't have a location that blends in better with the surroundings and theme. Maybe I am just being pedantic, but is that really too much to ask? But this is the first aesthetic failure  at DAKin quite some time so I won't make too big a thing out of it.

Our Apologies to the Frogs

The last time we showed a photo of a frog, it was of one being devoured by a deadly snake. (Sometimes she definitely puts the "real" in a Aruna's Real Africa!) So we thought for today we would should show the frog some much needed love and pass along some info regarding a special event coming to Disney's Animal Kingdom.


As part of their series of animal-themed days, the first such day for 2015 is going to be called "Spring Forward" Day. While coinciding with the beginning of Daylight Savings time, DAK will celebrate the hopping amphibians, toads and frogs in early March.
"Guests visiting Rafiki’s Planet Watch on March 5 will have the opportunity to learn about various amphibians and participate in fun, amphibian related activities! Hop on by to examine amphibian adaptations, try leaping like a frog, listen to and identify frog calls, and make toad abodes (special homes for frogs and toads) for their backyards."
So if you are in the park that day, head over to Rafiki's and check it out. While nothing spectacular, these events are still great fun. To learn more about it, click over to the Disney Parks Blog to get all of the details and some fun frog facts.

Joe Rohde, Snow Leopards and a DVD Every Rohde Fan Needs!

We have some great news regarding The Leopard in the Land, the new documentary starring Joe Rohde chronicling his time in Mongolia helping to raise awareness about the endangered Snow Leopard. You can now get your DVD copy straight from eBay! Just click here

image copyright Snow Leopard Conservancy
We have been getting a lot of request and questions about this film since it was announced Mr. Rohde would be making this incredible journey. If you want to learn more about it click here to go to the Snow Leopard Conservancy website. And by the way, we plan on talking about this film quite a bit in future episodes of the Radio Harambe Podcast, so stay tuned.

Snow Leopard photographed at the Bronx Zoo
Snow leopards are found throughout a wide range in the mountainous regions of Central Asia. However, because of the small amount of food, the range for the individual animal is huge, meaning there just are not that many cats in the wild. In fact, most people who live in the region go their entire lives without ever seeing one. Scientists studying the animal can go years without spotting a cat, only finding footprints, scat and carcasses. The snow leopard with its coloration blends seamlessly with the rocks. You could be standing right next to one and never know it.

The snow leopard is, of course, named for its coat, an off white almost yellowish color. It has huge paws that not only help it kill its prey (typically blue sheep and ibex, but also rodents and ground birds), but also makes climbing its rocky home easier. The fur on the bottom of its pads help give it traction. It has a very long tail, about the length of its body, to give it tremendous balance. All adaptations that allow it to live in its inhospitable home.

Snow Leopard kitten and mother at the Bronx Zoo
With such wide ranging territories, snow leopards can go a long time before seeing another of its kind. To make up for that, the leopard leaves messages. Scent markings and claw rakings advertise their presence to other leopards. They will often rub their cheeks (much like house cats) on boulders. During breeding season, they also use their voices which can carry great distances in the mountains. The male has no role in raising the kittens. The mother will raise the litter, usually numbering 2 or 3, by herself for the first year and a half of the their lives.

According to the Snow Leopard Conservancy, there are only 4,500-7,500 left in the wild, placing them on the list of endangered species. They suffer from shrinking habitat and the loss of prey as a consequence. But they are also illegally hunted for their fur as well as their bones that are used for Asian medicines. Plus they are sometimes killed by farmers to protect livestock.


That is why organizations like the Conservancy are so important. Within their efforts to save these gorgeous cats, they assist and educate local farmers and herders to more effectively manage their livestock while limiting the threat to leopards. If you purchase the DVD, you will be directly helping them in their efforts. But take a look at the rest of their website. They have other Snow Leopard items for sale and you can even adopt a cat!

Disney's Animal Kingdom News Round-Up for February 4, 2015: Daisy Duck and Floor Work

Daisy Duck Getting New Digs: For all of the character meet-and-greet folks out there, Daisy Duck has once again moved. She will now greet guests on the pathway by the former Creature Comforts gift shop just before the entrance gate to Africa, the same spot she was found during the holidays. Her old meet-and-greet location was the Character Landing boat dock on Discovery Island and we are not sure if any additions will be made to that area as a result.


Maintenance Work at the Jambo House: It seems some work is being done on the floors in the main lobby at the Animal Kingdom Lodge Jambo House. This seems to be just some routine sprucing up, but if anything more comes of it we will let you know. If you have reservations at the Jambo House during February, just be aware you may have some barricades up and noisy work being done.


Park Hours for this week are...

Wednesday: February 4  9am - 6pm (Extra Magic Hour 8 - 9am)
Thursday: February 5  9am - 6pm

Aruna's Real Africa: A Podcast Companion

As you may have heard I was on the Radio Harambe podcast this week (and if you haven’t heard, go and listen!) so I thought I would do a quick companion post with photographs to go with it.

At my favorite campsite, Tzendse. There are always elephants near the fence...


A small traffic jam caused by a lion in the road.


The young hyena pup begging for a handout. Luckily these people knew better than to feed it.


A red hartebeest, one of the less charming antelope in my opinion. These cannot be found in Kruger by the way, this photograph was taken in Addo Elephant Park.


The boomslang with his frog dinner. On the left the bench I was sitting on. The photo quality isn’t very good as of course I had left my camera in the car and this was with my phone and I didn’t want to get too close for obvious reasons ;-)


Dave also asked me what my favorite animal was to photograph and of course that isn’t an easy question to answer. Now I’ve thought about it a bit more I think I can say that it’s either an animal I haven’t seen before, or not been able to photograph before or just the animal I’m photographing at that moment, trying to get a good picture so it can even be something like this beautiful golden orb spider...


I’ll be leaving again for Kruger on the 5th of February at 1 am (4th February 6pm on the east coast of the US) follow me on twitter @arunarealafrica

Some More DAK Construction Photos

Disney's Animal Kingdom is back to being essentially one giant construction wall in many places within the park. Take a look at this photo of Discovery Island and you will see what I mean. It is essentially a giant labyrinth of walls. Not exactly a magical photo-op, eh?


Construction also continues throughout the rest of Discovery Island, including work on the various gift shops. I'll give them this, at least these walls a pretty.


But Discovery Island is not the only area aesthetically challenged by Disney construction crews. Asia is also now littered with walls, and mostly boring orange ones at that.


We can call this one "Just another great photo ruined by walls...". It does make us feel terrible for the first time guest to these normally jaw-droopingly beautiful park.


As we have been reporting for some time now, these walls in the Asia area are there to hide work being done for the new Rivers of Light show out on the lake. As we can see, that work is continuing right now. This show obviously requires some serious work.


And then there is...wait...wait...what is that kiosk selling now???  NOOOOOOO!!!!


Our continued thanks to Jenn Greene and Destination in Florida for these great photos. Don't forget, if you want to book a Disney vacation, Jenn is the person to know. She will help you get the best deal, she will take away all the time and stress in planning, AND she will make a donation to our Conservation Partners for every trip booked!
