    Thanks for all of the help so far! What is the best time of day to make reservations at Sanaa so the animals are most active and when we have the best chance of getting a table by the window?

    Hi Liza:

    Sanaa at Kidani Village is a wonderful restaurant overlooking a huge savanna where you can see zebras, giraffes, wildebeests and other animals through floor-to-ceiling windows.  Most seats in the restaurant tend to feature great views of the animals.  The animals tend to be active most earlier in the day, so if you are heading to lunch or dinner, I would try to make a reservation on the early side.  When you make your reservation, make sure to request a table by the window.  It won't be guaranteed, but you may be surprised.  Also, you should increase your chances to secure a table by the window by making an early reservation and letting the hostess know that you are willing to wait for the preferred table to open.  Regardless of time, you should have a wonderful experience.

    Enjoy your vacation.
