The Gorilla Falls Exploration Trail is a walkthrough attraction at Disney's Animal Kingdom at the Walt Disney World in Florida. It is located at Africa next to the Kilimanjaro Safaris attraction where guests can see African animals. It is about three-eights of a mile in length. In most of the exhibits, there are "research students" positioned at most locations to give you information about the animals and answer questions.

The attraction was renamed from Gorilla Falls Exploration Trail to Pangani Forest Exploration Trail in August of 1998 and would keep this name until May 27, 2016, when the original name was restored.

According to Disney Legend, the Pangani Forest was originally a hunting trail during the Dutch rule over Harambe, after Harambe was self-governed, it was turned into a wildlife preserve. Additionally, a king's tomb can be found on the trail, hinting Harambe once had a monarch-like government.
