    We are staying at the AKL Jambo House Deluxe Studio room with a savanna view. Where will our room possibly be? And on which floor? Thank you for all your great information!

    Hi Rudolf, and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    With an upcoming stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge Villas - Jambo House you are in for a real treat! This unique Resort is so well themed that you literally will feel as if you have been transported to a luxurious African safari lodge. Many Cast Members at the Resort are actually from various parts of Africa and are delighted to share stories about what it is like to live there. Cast Members also host various cultural activities and animal discovery sessions held daily throughout the Lodge. I highly recommend that you take the time to participate if you can; it will really enhance your stay.

    Rudolf, as you have booked a Deluxe Studio with savanna view, you can expect to be placed in a room with a balcony overlooking either the Arusha, Uzima, or Sunset Savannas. Each Savanna has its own unique characteristics, and there are different types of animals roaming throughout each one. All Deluxe Studios with savanna views are located on the 5th and 6th Floors of Jambo House, with Club Level rooms being located on the 6th Floor. 

    In my experience, one of the best times to be out on your balcony observing the animals is either first thing in the morning or around dinner time when the animals are fed for the evening. This is a great time to observe some of the more elusive ones who tend to lie low throughout the day.

    Should you have any other questions as you continue to plan for your trip, please let us know. We are here to help and would love to hEAR from you again!

    Wishing you a magical upcoming Disney vacation at Animal Kingdom Lodge!
