Giraffe calf named Aella debuts at Kilimanjaro Safaris in Animal Kingdom

A two month-old Masai giraffe has made her official debut at Kilimanjaro Safaris in Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

The baby giraffe, named Aella, was born on June 29 and has spent her time backstage with her mother. Now, she has made her grand debut and may be seen by guests during their ride on Kilimanjaro Safaris.


Born standing five feet tall, Aella has been quickly growing, but guests will have no issue spotting her during their ride as she’s the smallest by a significant margin.
