    Looking for best room avail.@ Animal Kingdom. I want to see lions and giraffe's right off my balcony. We are a family of 4. Looking for info on diff. between Kidani Village & Jambo House. Also, diff. between Savanna View and Kilmanjaro Club Concierge.

    Hi Melanie,

    I'll have to let you know that Savanna view rooms are fantastic, but you won't see lions and giraffes together -- too much of a food chain kind of thing.  However, you will have the opportunity to see Anikole cattle, Bongo, Blesbok, Eland, Grant's Zebra, Greater Kudu, Impala, Reticulated Giraffe, Thomson's Gazelle, Waterbuck, Red River Hogs, and White-Bearded Wildebeest as well as a whole bunch of birds.  

    At Jambo House, there is a larger lobby, a counter service restaurant, and two table service restaurants.  There are also traditional resort rooms as well as villas.  At Kidani Village, the lobby is still impressive but more understated, & there is only one table service restaurant.  This resort consists of villas of various sizes.  I think of it is as the "quiet sister" of Jambo House. We LOVE both the resorts equally.

    A Savanna View room will provide with views of the animals, but the best views are when you book the Arusha Savanna View rooms at Jambo House. The Kilimanjaro Club rooms will offer additional amenities (click here to see detailed information), & some offer Arusha Savanna Views, too. 

    I'd encourage you to visit www.aklresort.com to see further information about the resorts; www.allearsnet.com also has an extensive collection of photos on both resorts. 

    Thank you for visiting the Moms Panel; please let us know if we can help again.
