Discovery Island Trails

Of the four wildlife trails at Animal Kingdom, this one gets the least traffic. Distracted by the Tree of Life overhead, or eager to get on to other areas of the park, many people don't even realize it is here. The trail, winding through the roots of the Tree of Life has small viewing areas where you can see such animals as capybaras, Galapagos tortoises, kangaroos, and plenty of exotic birds.
