The Wildlife Express Train is a transport ride at Disney's Animal Kingdom that takes guests from Africa to Rafiki's Planet Watch and back. On the ride, guests get the chance to see some of Animal Kingdom's backstage facilities, including animal holding buildings for rhinos and elephants, among other animals.

It takes about 7 minutes to travel from the Harambe railway station in Africa to Rafiki's Planet Watch and an additional five to return. The full journey is 1.2 miles round-trip.

The railway is part of the fictional Eastern Star Railway, running from Lusaka to Nairobi and Kisangani.

Trivia

  • Disney is unusually strict about people standing up while the train is moving. They monitor it closely and will stop the train if they see anyone standing.
