Time FrameLate October/Early November 2012
First announced back in February on the Disney Parks Blog, A larger Zebra presence will be added back to Kilimanjaro Safaris in the fall of 2012. Zebras used to occupy space on the Savannah where they would graze with animals like Giraffes, Sable Antelope, Gazelles and more. They proved to be too aggressive for the other animal species so they were relocated to an offstage area that was only visible in a small clearing after the tilting bridge.
To accommodate the zebras, Disney will be changing the end of the ride and removing the poachers backstory. The ending scene will be redone to remove the elephant animatronic and geysers to provide a new space for multiple species of zebras.
The first species of Zebras expected to be added is the Grant's Zebra, a supsecies of Plains Zebras.
An additional Zebra species, the Grevy's Zebra is expected to join the Zebra habitat soon.
