Disney's Animal Kingdom's Discovery Island Trails

The Tree of Life is Disney's Animal Kingdom's majestic centerpiece.

There are 300 animals carved in this iconic symbol.

There is a wonderful and often overlooked area that gets you closer to this amazing display of artistry called the Discovery Island Trails.

 I say often overlooked because every time we've visited this serene area, it is relatively uncrowded.
 There are wooden foot bridges and tunnels.

Animals you may spot along these paths include White Storks, Asian Small-Clawed Otters, Red Kangaroos...

...West African Crowned Cranes, African Crested Porcupines, Galapagos Tortoise, Lesser Flamingos, Macaws, Saddle-Billed Storks,  Lappet Face Vultures, and Ring-Tailed Lemurs.

If you want to get off the beaten path at the Animal Kingdom, take a stroll along the Discovery Island Trails.

  1. I love those trails. I like the one that goes by the tortoise enclosure. I get a kick out of seeing a tortoise that huge!

    A nice quiet place to stroll around and take photos.
