“Humphrey”, Disney’s Newest Giraffe, Joins Kilimanjaro Safaris

Excuse us while we fill your screen with a little cuteness… in the form of a baby giraffe! It seems like we’ve heard more and more baby news coming out of Walt Disney World recently. Two new arrivals, a baby hippo and a baby gorilla, arrived at Disney’s Animal Kingdom earlier this month. Prior to that we’ve shared baby news in with a baby boy zebra, baby girl mandrill, a baby boy rhino, and more! Now, we’re seeing Disney’s Animal Kingdom’s latest baby addition, a baby giraffe named Humphrey, join the savanna.

As shared via Disney’s Animals, Science & Environment on July 29: “Meet “Humphrey!” This morning was a special day on Kilimanjaro Safaris as our newest Masai giraffe joined his mom Lily for his very first steps on the savanna. Humphrey was born in June and has spent the last few weeks backstage bonding with mom. He’s a playful and curious little guy, and guests on Kilimanjaro Safaris can “spot” Humphrey by his unique butterfly-like marking over his right shoulder and the heart-shaped markings dotting his coat. Join us in welcoming Humphrey to the family!”

Well Humphrey, you’re absolutely adorable! Lily, Humphrey’s Mom, seems to be watching over the little guy beautifully. If you want a chance to spot Humphrey on your next visit to Disney’s Animal Kingdom, take a ride on the popular Kilimanjaro Safaris attraction. Fingers crossed you’ll be lucky enough to spot little Humphrey hanging out on the big savanna!

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 15 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
