A wonderfully relaxing train ride on a steam powered train. A great way to relax and learn a little something about the animals

I loved this train, if not for the train itself, for the nice trip through the roaming grounds of all of the wildlife. It was almost like being on a safari in the early 20th century. The park still operates an authentic, full-size steam locomotive in excellent condition, so that helps the ride a lot. Busch really knows how to run their trains, and I remember reading how this was one of the original rides in the park so its nice to see a park kepe their train in good shape after all these years! (unlike SFOG )

Not as great as it used to be. Theyve changed the train so that you can only get on and off at the Nairobi train station. The tracks are changed so you cant even get over by Stanleyville and Congo anymore. Great way to see the animals, but inconvient for not being a park circuit anymore.

Neat train ride with a nice route around the park as what people have said in the above reviews. When we rode, several giraffes came right up to the side of the passenger car we were in and bent his long neck down so he could look inside. It was pretty funny seeing the elderly couple sitting closest to the animal be suddenly startled by seeing the giraffe looking right into their eyes.

This train is ok. Seeing the animals is a plus, and going over by the coasters especially Montu is really cool. You can get some great shots of Montu from the train. The train has gone down a step now that the train doesnt go through its full circle. It goes as far as the tunnel then comes right back.

Standard Theme Park train ride. You get on, and it takes you in a big circle where you could get off at various stations. If you take the train round trip, half of the ride you will go through the built up section of Busch Gardens and see all of their big coasters up close, and the other half goes through the animal part of the park. If youre lucky in this part, the garaffes will come right up to the train and try to get food from the people on it. Also, if the train is open during Howl-O-Scream (it was open 2 years ago), take a ride on it about a half hour before the park closes. Its a cool experience. When I went a fog started rolling in over the African Savanna, and made it so you could only see a few feet in front of you. Since you couldnt see that far, every so often an animal would just appear a few feet from the train. It had to be creepier than any scary stuff that Busch Gardens put in purposely because it was real.

Sergenti Express Railway is a train. It is average speed, it has a large capacity, and a long duration. This is a great way to see the animals and rest your feet if youre tired from walking.It is also fun.

This is a nice, relaxing ride and shows off a much-improved Serengeti Plain (although Id like to see the Plain expanded). Disneys Animal Kingdom has obvioously had some impact on the animal offerings here.

Good way of seeing the park, we rode around almost the whole thing. Saw lots of animals, but the "guide" was kind of stupid when we came to tunnels. I hate guides that try to be cute... it doesnt work for me.
