Early closure for KS?

Previous trips have been when AK has a closing time of 5 pm or 6 pm. If the park is open until 8pm, is Kilimanjaro Safaris open that late as well? Or does that attraction close earlier due to the animals' feeding times?

Animals more active late in day?

Just curious if animals are more active late in the day vs mid day?

It will close earlier. The time for the last departure will be listed in the weekly times guide and on a sign at the entrance to the attraction.

Early morning and near dusk are the most active times for the animals. Being on one of the last KS tours of the day is my favorite time to go - the animals know that dinnertime is near and tend to be out and about.

That's a great question! We have always gone first thing in the morning but someone recently told me of a great experience at closing time so I thought I would try that strategy next time but I will be going at Christmas with extended hours.

Good to know I need to get there earlier than closing!
