Walt Disney Imagineers are busy at work on a new project at Disney's Animal Kingdom – what officials are calling a new, immersive experience.

According to the official Disney blog, the tours at the Walt Disney World park in Florida will offer small groups of guests "personalized, guided treks" through off-the-beaten-path areas of the popular Kilimanjaro Safaris Expedition attraction.

African animals in the area include zebras, giraffe, hippos, elephants, rhinos and lions.

"During these excursions, guests will be able to spend more time observing wildlife on the savannah while learning about them from a Disney guide," writes a spokesman.

Disney says guests will trek through an undeveloped forest area of the Harambe Reserve and then board a "unique vehicle specially designed for the rest of the quest."

Reservations for the tour will open later this year. Disney has not yet released pricing information or an official start date.
