With four different Disney Parks, it makes total sense that Walt Disney World is known as ‘the Most Magical Place on Earth.’

Between Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, and EPCOT, there are hundreds of instances of that one-of-a-kind magic that makes a Guest’s entire Walt Disney World vacation.

TikTok user @allirivkah recently posted this video, showing an encounter that could only happen on Animal Kingdom’s Kilimanjaro Safaris attraction.

While riding the attraction, a beautiful antelope known as a bongo can be seen along the ride vehicle’s route. As the bus driver tries to coax the bongo into crossing, it stays put, giving Guests an encounter that is truly up close and personal.

The beautiful antelope raises its head as the Guests pass, inspecting them in what looks like the cutest greeting ever.

Bongos are nocturnal grazing antelopes and can be found in  East, West, and Central Africa. Fun fact: there are actually classified further into two subspecies, the Western Bongo and the Eastern Bongo. The Eastern Bongo lives in the mountain regions, while the Western Bongo lives in woodland areas. As a result, the Eastern Bongo is larger than its Western counterpart!

Which animal is your favorite to see while riding Animal Kingdom’s Kilimanjaro Safaris?
