Nigerian Dwarf Goats Added to Kilimanjaro Safari at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

A new species has been added to the Kilimanjaro Safaris at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. The species is the Nigerian Dwarf Goat. The goats have been added near the end of the safari adventure through the Harambe Wildlife Reserve. These miniature West African goats can be seen chasing, climbing, and also playing on the savanna. They can also be found at the Affection Section at Rafiki’s Planet Watch.

The Nigerian Dwarf Goats are originally from Nigeria and are considered to be very high in value because of their high protein milk. The milk also is quite sweet. The goats are able to support villages in Nigeria with products made from goat milk products. This means that there is less need for people to rely on wildlife which also helps protect the wildlife and their habitats. The Warden’s outpost is on the edge of the Harambe Wildlife Reserve. This land is managed in a way that protects local wildlife and allows the animals and humans to live near each other harmoniously.

These goats are now out and about for those who go for a ride on the Kilimanjaro Safaris. They also can be visited at the recently reopened Affection Section at Rafiki’s Planet Watch. What do you think of these new wildlife friends that are now at Disney’s Animal Kingdom?
