My mother has let me know that she’s willing to cover the cost of the Wild Africa Trek for the two of us as a combo bday/xmas present for me during our trip! The ‘animal’ parts of the Animal Kingdom are my absolute favorite things on any Disney trip, so I’m am super-geeked to be thinking about doing the tour!!
My only problem – I’ve got a mild fear of heights. It’s just unsupported/“open” heights that bother me (being on the roof of my house to repair my chimney this summer, for example, was no fun at all). On the other hand, I’ve done ropes courses before a few stories off the ground with no problems – being strapped into the harness on the course and having something to hold onto made it fine for me. I gather that the tour is the same set-up? Are there rope “handrails” all the way across the bridges? How high off the ground are you? I’ve watched some POV videos on youtube but it’s hard to get a real sense of scale.
