Discovery Island Trails are walking paths that offer up close wildlife encounters in
Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park.

Take a relaxing stroll down beautiful pathways and trails, over wooden foot bridges and
through cave-like tunnels, and stop at the viewing areas to observe and photograph a rich
variety of exotic animals.

Galapagos tortoises, lemurs, kangaroos, capybaras, cockatoos and cotton-top tamarin
monkeys are just some of the fascinating creatures you may encounter along Discovery
Island Trails. There is also a glass-paneled observation area where you can watch river
otters frolic above and underneath the water.

You can approach the Discovery Island Trails from a number of different directions and
can enjoy the viewing areas in any sequence.

The Discovery Island Trails surround the base of the Tree of Life on Discovery Island at
the center of Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park.

Please note: Some trail experiences in the immediate vicinity of the Tree of Life are currently
closed for maintenance.
