I like this ride, except it takes forever to get on it. Long wait time every time.

"Basically if a Guest were to drop something out and fall out of the vehicle to get it, those Nile crocodiles would eat him. But, here's where it gets fun. The reason [the safari drivers] must speed off? It's to keep other Guests from jumping in after them, so then instead of just having one person destroyed by Nile crocodiles, you would then have two. So the Cast Member is saving you from doing that. And you know, lawsuits [...] so the safari driver must drive as fast as they can to get back."

Hey at least they are trying to keep the death toll low, but if they go into something where there are crocodiles, it should qualify for a Darwin Award.

That took so long to get to the point I thought there'd be a recipe at the end.

I've seen plenty of nature documentaries and know what a crocodile attacking a zebra or antelope looks like. No one is jumping into that to save anyone. They just don't want the kids to see someone get their face ripped off as their arms are being twisted off their body and their torso is being split apart in a tug of war. I would describe croc attacks in more detail but they are too horrible to think about so I won't.

How does Disney get these promo shots with no crowds clogging up the view? Maybe they take the pics on days when the entire park is down for cleaning, but I don't think they have any of those days, so maybe they're just photoshopped.

A former Cast Member has revealed what must happen on Kilimanjaro Safaris if disaster strikes.

Was this written by an AI or something? All of the phrasing is technically correct but awkward as hell, in a way that no one speaks.

For the price of a week at Disney you could probably go on safari at actual Mount Kilimanjaro.

Judging by the shadows, that looks to be pretty early in the morning. It probably wouldn't be hard to close a small section for a well-planned photo shoot. For something like that they could be done in 30 minutes, or less.

Yep speed reading for the win. Skimmed to the relevant part.

They just close off a section, sorta like when they film tv shows there.

Rule number one, don't become the second victim. There are people who would instinctually jump in to try and save someone without thinking about this rule.

However, instead of having this be part of the hidden training for the drivers, make it an explicit announcement to the people on the ride. If you don't obey the rules of staying in the vehicle, we will leave you. If that isn't enough warning for some people, nothing is.

This isn't that far off if you go with the highest price tickets for Disney skipping the line etc and compare to the lowest price safaris.

/Well . . . safari near Kilimanjaro
//And before the pandemic, no idea what prices now would be
///Deciding to go to Disneyworld for a week instead of overseas generally (not necessarily on safari) baffles me

That seems like pretty standard practice for any emergency situation.

You don't want more people who are untrained/unprotected going into a dangerous situation where they will become more victims and potentially a hazard for rescuers.

This type of stuff is drilled in rescue situations everywhere.

If you are a lifeguard you are trained to prevent other people from going in after someone and to also know how to separate yourself from someone in the event that they panic and start dragging you down.

If you are a rescuer at a fire, industrial accident, oxygen deficient area, or any other type of similar situation you prevent people from going in after someone. That person will likely be overcome by smoke, chemicals, lack of oxygen and just be another person who needs rescue.

I was there one day when a lightning strike took out a giraffe. We didn't see it hit the giraffe, but there was a super close bolt of lightning, and then we come around a corner or something minutes later and there's a giraffe out cold on the ground.  The driver was like "Looks like one of our giraffes isn't feeling well, and there's one of the vets to help it get better." A day or so later I spotted a blurb in the paper about the death.

That farking article sucked and nothing but an ad. Anyway, odds are the crocs would ignore you because they are well fed but do you want to test it.
