Disney's Animal Kingdom is the fourth of four theme parks built at the Walt Disney World Resort and opened on April 22, 1998. It is the largest single Disney theme park in the world, covering more than 500 acres (200 ha), and is also the first Disney theme park to be themed entirely around animal conservation, a philosophy once pioneered by Walt Disney himself.
The park is represented by The Tree of Life, a sculpted 145 feet (44 m), 50-foot-wide (15 m) artificial tree.
A swirling tapestry of 325 animals is carved into the bark of this massive attraction.
Kilimanjaro Safaris features numerous African animals freely roaming through acres of savanna, rivers and rocky hills.
