First Masai Giraffe Born at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Has a Name Thanks to Disney Parks Blog Fans

Earlier this summer a baby giraffe was born at Disney's Animal Kingdom - the very first Masai giraffe born at the park - and of course he needed a name. Not just any name would suit this little guy, so the Disney Parks Blog set up a contest to have the fans pick a name.

There was a list of names chosen by the animal care team and readers of the blog had a few days to make their picks.

More Savannah Space Planned For Kilimanjaro Safaris

Kilimanjaro Safaris at Disney's Animal Kingdom is slated to get some enhancements and updates this spring to give guests even more opportunities to spy the park's wildlife, especially zebra.

Changes expected to be made are the removal of the Audio Animatronics "Little Red" elephant which is found near the end of the safari. This will make way for additional savannah area as well as a new watering hole.
